Epworth is committed to protecting our visitors, patients, employees and community. Unfortunately, given the uncertainty around COVID-19 our work experience program for 2020 and 2021 is suspended.
Epworth has a limited number of work experience placements each year. Work experience gives Year 10 students time at Epworth to learn about an occupation or industry by observing others or completing tasks under supervision. It is an opportunity for secondary students to develop skills and networks and to decide what they would like to do in the future.
Students are placed with Epworth primarily to observe and learn – not to undertake activities which require extensive training or expertise. Not all areas allow or have the resources to accommodate work experience students. Epworth offers a maximum of one-week placements only, working in a variety of departments/wards on one of our sites.
