Things to note:

·         The Placement Office is located at the Mt Lawley camps - Room W117.

·         Placements are not notified when you upload documents to Sonia. You need to email placement@nmtafe.wa.edu.au, let us know and we will manually check off your documents.

·         Students must hand in their COMPLETED Duty of Care Portfolio to their campus lecturer prior to being allocated a placement. Students that do not have the required checks may have their placement and course delayed. These requirements are set by the Department of Health and the facilities.

Students are reminded to take copies of their placement books (reports and reflections) prior to handing them back in to TAFE after your placement as you may be required to produce this information at interviews, to future employers or for grad programs. Your files are not easily retrieved after they are archived.
