BusEd Administration Student Placement application

The information on this form will be forwarded to the educational institution so that your proposed project can be assessed. The decision on whether your project will be accepted will be made by the educational institution and you will be informed of the outcome of your application by that institution.

Note: Multiple projects for one business will require separate applications.

Terms of participation

Please read the paragraph below and tick the following indicating acceptance of these terms:

  • Glen Eira Council’s BusEd Program facilitates the match between local businesses and tertiary institutions with the goal of mutually suitable outcomes for both students and clients. Student project outcomes can vary in their success, and outcomes for clients cannot be guaranteed, therefore participants need to understand and accept this risk.
  • Preference will be given to residents of Glen Eira and businesses located in the Glen Eira local government area. Applications may be declined if these criteria are not met.
  • To maximise the likelihood of a good outcome, clients need to commit time to the project, meet with the students regularly and provide timely feedback. This also helps ensure that the learning requirements of the students are met.
  • Clients must ensure that they are satisfied with the confidentiality arrangements and/or formal agreements made with the institution.

Part of the students’ learning requirement is to have some exposure to customer service. This might be in the form of undertaking a customer survey and in some cases helping to compile customer service standards for the business. Please confirm whether you are willing for students to have some contact with customers for the purpose of this exercise. Businesses that are willing for students to have some customer contact will be given priority to these projects.
