This placement program has been developed to allow students from Agriculture and Animal and Veterinary Biosciences to extend their formal academic learning beyond the classroom. It aims to provide students with an opportunity to link theory with practice in a first year vocational subject. The subject allows students to bring their learning from the university into a work environment and test out their knowledge in a real world job. It brings together the expertise of industry partners and La Trobe University staff for the benefit of the student's professional development.
