Work Experience and Vocational Placements

Work Experience and Vocational Placements

SA Water recognises that work experience programs provide a crucial link between students and industry. These programs enable students to experience the core aspects of a particular job first-hand with industry leaders and to complete their course requirements. As such, SA Water endeavours to offer support to students who are interested in pursuing a career in the water industry by making work experience placements available to students where possible.
