Students are encouraged to look for their own work placement before applying for an enrolment at the college. If students find their own work placement, the workplace where the students will conduct their work placement will need to be approved by the college. A suitable workplace provided by students for this course is a regulated/registered early childhood education and care service. For students in South Australia, if the students cannot find their own work placement, the college will support them in finding work placement. The college will inform the students if the college can organise work placement for them before they are enrolled and will only approve their enrolments if work placement places are available for them.

Applicants must provide National Police and Working with Children checks before commencing work placement.
