Placement opportunities


ADAVIC can provide a supportive learning environment for student placements and workplace learning.

ADAVIC does not currently offer any face-to-face counselling services for the community, and therefore we do not have suitable positions if this is required from a placement experience.

Our typical placement opportunities are the same as those offered for volunteer opportunities (see above), in particular:

  • Support Group Facilitator Volunteer
  • Phone, Email, and Admin Support Volunteer

Placement requirements differ across universities and tertiary institutes and across courses, including:

  • the duration of the placement (number of hours required for completion)
  • the type of placement experience needed (eg, "counselling" vs. "support" opportunities; direct client contact (face-to-face) vs. phone contact; working independently with clients vs. observation only, etc)
  • the type of field supervision required during the placement.
  • reporting and assessment obligations

To determine whether your placement is suitable, it is best to contact the ADAVIC office.
