Placement applications or expressions of interest are made through your education provider’s placement office or your course convener. The CPO does not take applications directly from individual students.
You will receive an email with login instructions to your SPO account once your details have been uploaded by your education provider. You will need to complete the placement pre-requisites on SPO at least 2 weeks before your placement starts.
One week before starting your placement, you will need to contact the placement area for a nursing or midwifery roster and collect your ACT Health student ID card from the Security Office.
Student and Trainee Placement Acknowledgement Form (Acknowledgement form)
You are required to sign your Acknowledgement Form. By signing this document, you demonstrate that you have read and understand your responsibilities whilst on placement.
You will need to upload a copy of the Acknowledgment form to your SPO account each calendar year.
A clinical placement can be cancelled by the CPO Manager or your education provider. If there are outstanding placement pre-requisites 2 weeks before your start date, your placement may be cancelled.
