Ishar appreciates the opportunity to provide workplace experience and student placements to local, interstate and international students of Secondary, Certificate and Diploma, and Tertiary levels.
Ishar offers practicum opportunities to students from disciplines including Community Work; Social Work; Social Science; Nursing and Medicine.
Requesting a Placement
Placement opportunities at the Centre are limited and there are usually more requests than places available. Therefore lecturers and supervisors should write to Ishar one full semester beforehand, to secure a placement for their students.
- Requests for placement must be sent in writing by the University or School and addressed to Ishar’s Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Andrea Creado.
- Once a placement is approved, an interview is organised for the student with Ishar’s Student Placement Supervisor, Violeta Sukoski, to discuss the details of the placement, and arrange induction to the Centre.
- Students should arrange a current Police Clearance. Students whose placement requires them to work with children, should arrange to obtain their Working with Children Check prior to this meeting.
Ishar Multicultural Women’s Health Centre encourages women to volunteer to participate in a cooperative team effort to achieve the aims of the Centre.
If you wish to volunteer at Ishar, please write to Ms. Andrea Creado, Ishar’s Chief Executive Officer, and enclose your most recent resume.
