Highton Veterinary Clinic – WORK EXPERIENCE
Highton Veterinary Clinic provides work experience opportunities for students offering meaningful, relevant and practical experience of working in a busy veterinary practice. We offer short term work placements for veterinary nurses or veterinary science students allowing an insight into the industry and the workplace in their chosen vocation.
We only offer these placements as part of a recognised program or course of study and include:
- TAFE work experience programs or compulsory industry placements for veterinary nurses
- University professional experience programs or compulsory industry placements for veterinary students or veterinary nurses.
- Currently the clinic does not provide opportunities for school based work experience.
The clinic only offers placements from April through to October in any yearly cycle. We can accommodate and supervise one student at a time without compromising the operation of the clinic or the quality of experience for the student.
TAFE veterinary nurse students will be accepted for block placement and not on a day-per-week arrangement. University student placements will be to a maximum of 2 weeks.
Voluntary Work Experience
Occasionally Highton Veterinary Clinic may offer opportunities for suitable applicants to participate in volunteer work experience.
This occurs when a person volunteers their services without pay, for the purpose of improving their work-related skills. Voluntary work experience does not form part of a recognised work experience program.
All requests for work experience placements must be accompanied by the appropriate documentation from the relevant educational institution or organisation. To determine suitability for placement, applicants will be required to attend an interview before being accepted.
