Cobaw supports the formal placement of students as a contribution towards training professionals for the community and health sector.  Both secondary students seeking work experience and tertiary students wishing to complete placements can contribute to the work of Cobaw.

Cobaw offers a broad range of services and programs providing interesting learning opportunities. We are also happy to discuss and support relevant post graduate research proposals and placements.

Please Note: Students need to be undertaking work experience or tertiary fieldwork placement that is requested, supported and approved by their learning institution, and that has set learning outcomes. We are unable to support a student seeking experience independently.

Student placements offered at Cobaw include:

  • Secondary school work experience and certificate level placement
  • Tertiary students requesting placement in adult physiotherapy, adult occupational therapy, dietetics, nursing and health promotion
  • Tertiary students requesting placement in paediatric physiotherapy, paediatric occupational therapy, paediatric speech pathology and early childhood education
  • Tertiary students requesting placement in social work and counselling.
