Work experience – closed for 2024

Thank you to everyone who has expressed interest in joining The Florey Work Experience Program (WEP). We have received a huge number of applications, which is a credit to you and your schools. Unfortunately as a result of so much goodwill and eagerness, our intake for work experience placements for 2024 is now closed.

We do still have a place for a First Nations student so please get in touch.

Thank you again on behalf of The Florey and Student Support.
