TAFE QLD/ABA Work Experience Pilot Program
At the recent ABN Conference it was announced that ABA and TAFE Queensland have entered into a joint agreement to support a pilot program for the provision of work experience opportunities to TAFE Qld students who have undertaken their Cert III in Accounts Administration, and who are currently undertaking their Cert IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping.
Nominated students will now have the opportunity to undertake a period of work experience (minimum 12 days) with Bookkeeping Practices, to provide vocational experience to the students while providing ABA affiliated practitioners with enthusiastic students looking to gain valuable insights into contemporary bookkeeping operations.
TAFE are in the process of identifying 5 nominated students who will be available to test the proposed arrangement. The duration of the Work Experience is expected to be a minimum of 12 days, and there is potential for this to be undertaken in various formats during the period of study. There is an opportunity for students to attend on a weekly, fortnightly or more than once a week, depending on the practice requirements.
This is a fabulous opportunity for students to gain valuable hands on experience within a dynamic bookkeeping practice, and a chance for invaluable learning and preparation for further job opportunities.
From a wider ABA perspective, this will allow practices an opportunity to review potential and future staff through a non-obligatory process – a potential win-win for both parties.
As this is a pilot program, it is currently limited to bookkeeping practices within South East Queensland. It is hoped that if we can demonstrate the success of this program, that it can be extended to other regions.
What is a suitable practice?
TAFE Qld have already identified students for this Pilot Program, and we now need to match them with suitable practices – if this is you, and you would like to discuss further and apply for this opportunity, please contact Cassandra Scott (ABA Director and ABA Program Coordinator) on 07 3879 2090 or via firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
