Development Placements cover a wide range of development streams. Depending on the organisation and current programs, students can expect to be involved in a wide range of tasks. Students are assigned mentors in the workplace to guide them over the eight-week period.

Students will be asked to nominate their interests and preferred development placements. Preferences will in turn be reviewed alongside academic records and proven skillsets prior to placing students with particular organisations.

Host organisations for the DSIP Development Placements are listed below. Click through for more details*.
