Student Placements with Knox City Council Youth Services

Knox City Council Youth Services (KYS) recognises the importance of providing opportunities for Tertiary students to gain workplace experience in the Youth Work field. We are still working off site but communicating, connecting and engaging with young people, colleagues, schools and organisations via online portals.

If you are a Tertiary student and seeking placement, we will be offering opportunities for 2nd Semester 2021.

Student Placements

Knox City Council Youth Services offers 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.
