genU welcomes students that are passionate about a career in community services to apply for a placement with our organisation. We support over 300 students per year to get involved and develop their skills across our suite of services including disability, mental health, aged care, accommodation, employment and training. We recognise that placements help students to better understand their career options and related courses of study that they may wish to pursue, and supports us to develop our workforce for the future.
genU works in partnership with a wide range of education and training institutions in order to ensure that we can offer quality positions to the right students. Our students are offered opportunities to work with our staff and practice their theoretical knowledge in a supportive environment.
For secondary school students, genU partners with the Geelong Region Local Learning and Employment Network Inc. (GRLLEN) who will forward exact dates and information regarding the application process to Secondary School Careers Teachers during Terms 1 & 2 each year. All information for secondary school students including how to apply each year is managed through the GRLLEN and secondary school careers staff. Please refer back to your school for advice.
