Student placements with an organisation truly making a difference

Windermere is a learning focused organisation. We recognise the value of tertiary students being given the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical setting.  We offer placements to students who need to gain field experience related to their area of study. 

Our practical placements help prepare students for the workforce by providing:

  • Valuable learning opportunities within various areas of Windermere.
  • The opportunity to reflect on theory that you have learnt at University and apply it in a practical, real-life setting.
  • Support from our Student Placement Officer.
  • Access to experienced staff who are willing to share their knowledge and wisdom.

We give our students comprehensive induction, orientation and supervision in a safe working environment.


All requests for placement must be formally lodged through Placeright, a secure, web-based information system that provides a standard, consistent and secure mechanism for managing student placements between placement providers and their education provider partners.

Please send a request for placement through the Placeright Portal using our ID Windermere Child and Family Services.  For further information on Placeright, please see


Due to the highly complex nature of our work, Windermere will only take students from universities we have formal partnerships with. We ask that students do not contact us directly, but facilitate this through their Field Education Coordinator / Placement Officer at their respective university.
