Opportunities for Workplace Employers, Organisations and Students
Providing students with practical training opportunities in the workplace
As part of meeting the criteria to award certification, students are required to gain exposure and experience in the Animal Care industry. We refer to this as a work placement or workplace practical training.
To provide our students with the necessary skills needed to complete their qualifications we work closely with over 100 employers in Australia. These include:-
- privately owned small and large animal veterinary practices,
- corporately owned veterinary hospitals,
- a range of pet-related businesses
- animal welfare organisations and;
- rehabilitation organisations.

Providing employment opportunities to students and graduates
We pride ourselves on the continued high employment rate of our graduates. There are several reasons for this including the quality of our training and the highly respected network of employers we work with. In fact, we are proud to say, 90% of our graduates are employed or enrolled in further study after training (NCVER, 2019).
If you are looking for a graduate or a student in training to join your team, we encourage you to send your job advertisement to us using the form below. We share job vacancies with our students and graduates via our exclusive private Facebook groups.
