Police Check and Working with Children Check
Prior to commencing a placement, students are required to obtain a police check. The Faculty of Health Work Integrated Learning Team utilise an online service called ‘Fit2Work’, and students will receive an email with instructions on how to apply. Students should not apply for a police check until they have received this email from Fit2Work.
Some organisations may also require students to obtain a Working with Children check if they will be working directly with children or families whilst on placement.
This is a core public health-health promotion unit and an elective health sciences unit that aims to provide students with an in-depth, working understanding of public health-health promotion and health science principles and approaches in the field. Students are required to undertake a minimum of 120 hours of work experience in a health-related agency. In addition to developing a practical understanding of their field of study, this experience will help students further develop the professional and personal skills required to work in their sector. The practicum component follows one seminar session covering: the expectations of the unit, and overview of project management; and an introduction to workplace organisation and context.
