Placements offer many benefits to both students and CPA staff.  Students gain a unique opportunity to apply classroom learning in the real world, under the supervision of experienced staff.  Through placement students can experience the wide range of services our organisation provides, and gain a greater understanding of potential roles they may be interested in pursuing throughout their career.
