ICMS resource a dedicated office in support of Work Integrated Learning (WIL), and this office includes experienced and dedicated professional placement consultant.
There are two stages in our Industry Training (Work Integrated Learning) Program:
The WIL team deliver the Work Integrated Learning Student Preparation Program undertaken in the study period prior to your WIL subject and professional placement. This program includes workshops, mentoring and mock scenarios that prepare students for professional placement. Topics covered include resume preparation, interview skills and workplace behaviour. The program will also include an individual mock interview with your professional placement consultant.
Following your mock interview, the professional placement consultant will facilitate interviews with our quality assured industry partners and generally advocate with industry to host eligible students on professional placement.
Professional placement can take students to a major city or regional area in Australia. Previously, professional placement has also taken many students to international destinations as well.
Once you secure a professional placement and begin, your professional placement Consultant provides continued coaching throughout your professional placement including on-going contact, evaluation and assessment support.
Whilst on placement you can be engaged by the host industry partner throughout two consecutive study periods * (including the term break), which means you could gain up to 9 months of professional placement experience before you graduate. And because this is part of your degree, international students, like domestic students, may work full-time (up to 38 hours per week) during their placement and during term breaks.
Your assigned professional placement Consultant is there to guide and mentor you through this process, from start to finish. The support is individual and personalised and aimed at facilitating the right professional placement for each student’s skills, interests and professional goals.
* Please note that one study period is equivalent of one trimester of study (1 orientation week and 12 weeks of subject delivery and assessment).
