Students may be requested to provide academic records, resume and written learning objectives for their placement application to be considered, depending on their area of study and program of interest.
A current relationship agreement must be in place between your education provider and LCHS.
For students to be able to commence their placement in our organisation, a current relationship agreement must be in place between their education provider and Latrobe Community Health Service in Placeright or equivalent. This will guarantee that students are covered under our insurance, and policies and requirements are met by both parties.
Education providers must be approved by law
The institution delivering the course which provides for the placement must be authorised under an Australian, state or territory law or an administrative arrangement of the Commonwealth or a state or territory to do so. Courses offered at universities, TAFE colleges and schools (whether public or private) will all satisfy this requirement, as will bodies authorised to offer training courses under state or territory legislation.
Scholarship and Cadetship Program
We now offer a number of scholarship and cadetship opportunities for university and TAFE students. These aim to support young people looking to pursue a career in community health.
