Practical Placement While Working

Post by Hgul » Sat Nov 12, 2016 11:10 pm

I have started my Diploma in childcare since last week, now from next year I want to start practical placement, question is: Can I apply for paid job? and during interview I can ask for the supervisor/director to help me complete my placement?
Or legally it's not allowed. I am interested in casual or part-time work.
Please reply.

It is allowed if your course provider and your work both agree to it and usually it is possible! As a casual it probably wont work because when doing practical placement you need to complete tasks and get a supervisor to sign your forms as evidence so with work it has to be consistent and as a casual you don't know when you're working etc.

It's probably best to get a permanent full time/part time job rather than a casual...

You need to observe a child who gets dropped off at the centre and write what happens. Write exactly what you see... what the parent does, what they do, how they say goodbye, etc.
