SIP coordinates host employers for students undertaking compulsory work placement. Each year SIP staff organise 6,500 student placements on behalf of schools and TAFEs.

Teachers and SIP staff work together as professional partners to plan, prepare and conduct work placements, as scheduled on a year planner. New students sign-up online via our Work Placement Connect portal.

Check out our timeline to see when offers are posted and what to do leading up to your students placements.

New students ‘signing up’ for the first time can create their own account at Work Placement Connect. Please use a stable email address and mobile number so we can send out details of placement, reminders, or in case of an emergency.

Go2Workplacement  helps prepare students with short videos and quizzes prior to placement. Pass the quiz and print the certificate to show the employer you are ready for work placement.

SIP can also help prepare students prior to placement, or we can arrange guest speakers from industry given enough notice. How much notice, the more the better. 2 months is ideal.  Contact us if you’re interested.
