Workplace Learning

Workplace Learning

Workplace learning programs enable secondary students to contextualise their learning while gaining valuable practical skills and knowledge in the workplace. By engaging in these programs, employers support students to understand the workplace, while creating career opportunities within industry.

To assist secondary students in becoming exposed to the work of the medical technology industry, MTAA has established a Workplace Learning Directory. Secondary students from schools, TAFE colleges or registered training organisations (RTOs) across Australia can access a list of MTAA member medical technology companies that have volunteered to offer workplace learning programs to secondary students.
