We have a strong relationship with Registered Training Organisations and universities to provide student placements at UnitingCare Kippax. Students contribute valuable and dedicated time to programs requiring extra support throughout the year. In 2020–21, we gave 6 students an opportunity to complete their placement.
“UnitingCare Kippax was one of the very few organisations in Canberra who continued to provide field-placement opportunities to students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. I was fortunate to be accepted at UnitingCare Kippax to do my Masters of Social Work student placement in July 2020. As a student on placement, I was given numerous opportunities to apply knowledge gained in classes into practice. I was privileged to be supervised by coordinators of various teams at UnitingCare Kippax. This helped me gain valuable knowledge and insights of what goes into planning and executing activities for community development, community transformation and community service provision. I was also inspired by the emphasis and efforts put by the leadership team into motivating and building capability of their employees, students, and volunteers. On successfully completing my student placement, I wanted to pursue a full-time career in a helping profession. Therefore, I applied for available job openings at UnitingCare Kippax and secured a position as a Community Inclusion/Counsellor within the Emergency Material and Financial Aid team in December 2020.”
