Student Placements

Wayss has a strong commitment to providing quality learning opportunities to students undertaking placements across the organisation.

We welcome undergraduate and postgraduate students for placements. We aim to provide you with an opportunity to apply your learning and solid understanding of the needs/issues facing people experiencing homelessness and family violence and how we provide our specialised support services.


What to expect on placement?

  • You will be surrounded by an encouraging and supportive team
  • You will receive regular supervision
  • You will be offered professional development opportunities

Wayss is committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment.  All students will receive a thorough induction and program/site orientation.

The student placement process will include an interview, reference checks and a Safety Screening Declaration prior to being placed.

Student visits

Wayss welcomes visits from student groups. These visits will provide the students with an overview of Wayss and the services we provide. Students can contact Wayss and may be placed with others visiting Wayss.
