Welcome to the ACH Group student placement information web page that supports communication regarding student placements for both educators and students.
ACH Group values a learning culture and we use an Interprofessional Learning (IPL) approach for student placements, which is when two or more professions (eg: a nurse and a physiotherapist) work together to learn and reflect about their professions’ similarities and differences. ACH Group believes an IPL approach to learning improves communication, collaboration, reduces risk of practising in isolation and ultimately improves the quality of care.
More than 900 students participate in work placements each year, and in 2018/19, 20 per cent of care staff employed came from student placements.
