Vocational placements give students of nationally recognised qualifications the opportunity to:
- undertake practical training in the workplace
- gain the experience required to enable them to demonstrate competence.
Note: Not all courses require a formal vocational placement to be undertaken as a part of a training program. Students must enter into and sign a vocational placement agreement before starting a placement. A blue card may be needed before a student can be placed in a child-related work area. Mater Education has workers' compensation insurance for students undertaking vocational placement.Students are covered for permanent impairment and death only, as per Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation Regulation 2004.
Students cannot undertake a vocational placement with any provider outside of Queensland.
