Education & Training Options

Work Placement

Work placements are an important part of health and community care education, giving students an opportunity to apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes they are taught in the classroom in clinical settings.

Alpine Health ensures that students are oriented to their environment and their placement team and are appropriately assessed and receive individual training.

There are robust systems for communication and feedback with students and our aim is to provide quality and consistent supervision by experienced supervisors.
