Student Placements Update – VIC
For all preferred Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and Universities that partner with Arcare, please note that regular changes to student placements are imminent in the current COVID-19 environment and Arcare will respond to Department of Health directions accordingly to minimise risk to our clients and community.
As per Directions 29th July, student clinical placement are permitted in all settings but restricted from providing care and being exposed to high-risk COVID and confirmed COVID clients. Students and assessors are restricted to one site only and should not have worked for another provider within x 14 days of commencing student placement at Arcare (this is an Arcare request). If the student has had their two COVID vaccines (greater than 14 days since the last dose) and they have no symptoms, then they do not require the 14 day restriction.
