Work Placements

Unfortunately the Western Bulldogs are unable to provide work experience to secondary school students.

The Western Bulldogs have a unique and innovative partnership with Victoria University. Through this relationship the Western Bulldogs provide Work Integrated Learning Cadetships to tertiary students who are typically in their final year of study at Victoria University.

These placements are based on and include the following:
• Work load of the department.
• The availability of a staff member to supervise the student - the availability of work space.
• Part of the students course requirement; and
• Being of specific relevance to the students’ area of study.

These opportunities are offered only to Victoria University Students and are advertised directly through the Work Integrated Learning Centre of each faculty and Victoria University.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide any further placement or work experience opportunities to students from other tertiary institutions.
