Knox City Council Youth Services (KYS) recognises the importance of providing opportunities for Tertiary students to gain workplace experience in the Youth Work field.

Our Semester 2 placement positions have been filled. We are unable to offer any further student placements in Semester 2, 2019

General placement inquiries will still be accepted but Semester applications for student placement will only be accepted during the allocated dates.


Student Placements

Knox City Council Youth Services offers two to three placement positions each year for students studying Youth Work or related courses the opportunity to gain skills in the industry, including: group work, information & referral, networking, projects, program preparation and delivery.

As a youth service we will do our best to cater to the student’s placement requirements, e.g. Research project. However, we cannot provide students 1 on 1 counselling experience.

Knox City Council Youth Services are committed to supporting students e.g. information for assignments, days and times for placements, etc

Please note: Knox Youth Services does not offer placement for work experience students. Knox Council has limited number of work experience opportunities to assist students with completing their studies. If you are interested in work experience in another area of Knox Council please visit Work Experience for Students.
