Student practicum and work experience

Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association provides a rewarding learning environment for students seeking practicum placement as part of their studies in areas such as:

  • Exercise Physiology/Sport and Exercise Science
  • Physiotherapy
  • Business Management
  • Journalism
  • Nursing
  • Sport and Event Management
  • Community Services

Placements can vary in duration from short placements up to 400 hours and tend to be project-based, with goals and proposed outcomes identified prior to starting the placement.

There are also research opportunities for undergraduate and/or postgraduate students (discussions with lecturers and our staff may help identify potential study areas).

For more information about practicum and work experience opportunities, contact the HR and Volunteers Coordinator at our Brisbane office or email.

Working in our gym

Students can gain valuable hands-on experience working with the experienced staff in ‘The Gym’ at our Brisbane headquarters. This needs to be part of a formal student placement.
