In recent years the demand for work experience at Adelaide and Monarto Zoos from TAFE students undertaking Certificate courses in “Captive Animals” and “Animal Studies” has increased as students are required to complete multiple weeks of work placement to achieve competencies. Zoos SA will continue to support these students by offering work experience placements through the TAFE sector. Unfortunately we are not able to offer work experience placements for senior secondary students unless they are undertaking Certificate courses at Gilles Plains TAFE in South Australia.
We do run Career Awareness Days for students with a passion for wildlife and interested in a career with animals and conservation.
