Important Notice – COVID-19
As a result of the changing COVID-19 situation and the many challenges and risks this possess, all national work experience placements scheduled to occur during 2020 have been cancelled.
Defence has taken this unprecedented step to protect their members and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission to the wider community. This decision is not something we take lightly, however, the health and safety of our whole community is important to us as we don’t want to put anyone at risk, despite how disappointing these cancellations maybe.
We encourage you to keep an eye this website regarding the work experience opportunities that will be available in 2021. The Defence Work Experience Program apologises for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciates your understanding in this matter.
