    Work Placement

    Just wondering where people who did Primary Industries went for work placement and also which primary industries course did you do (horticulture, conservation etc)
    When other little girls wanted to be a ballerina, I wanted to be a fire truck.

    Re: Work Placement

    WOW this PI page is so freaking active aye.

    I did my placement in Pre-lim on a sheep station at shearing, so I basically rode a bike around sheep, yelled at my hound and did yard work. I ended up drenching and the like as well.

    This year I'm doing it on our property, doing all the same things. I managed to land it in the holidays so I won't fall behind at school

    Re: Work Placement

    I did my work placement on a beef property in Camperdown (bout 150ks west of Geelong), had the best time, as I went down during calving. Got to tag calves, muster cattle on foot & on motorbike, fix electric fences, hand-rear calves, feed market steers, pick out sale steers, and heaps more. My second lot of work placement will either be completed at Melbourne Show, or another week at a different beef stud.

    Re: Work Placement

    Some placements are a part of the course. For example, the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care and Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care at Futurum Australia provides 120 hours and 240 hours respectively along the course. So I would say it depends on the RTO and the course!
