Supporting Universities in Preparing Students for Successful Careers in Allied Health

We connect undergraduate students with high-quality practical placements through our Allied Health Assistant Program to enhance their job readiness.

How Can ERA Support Your Students?

Diverse Placement

ERA has partnerships with some of Victoria's leading health organisations, providing students with broad placement opportunities that help them gain clarity on their desired career path.


ERA's unique approach helps students build on their practical skills, increase confidence in a clinical workplace setting and acquire valuable industry connections for fulfilling careers.

Practical Application
of Theory

University equips students with strong theoretical foundations for successful careers; ERA builds on this with practical placements, early skill development, and a qualification that supports their degree.

Government Funding

The qualification and training central to ERA’s Allied Health Assistant Program is delivered with Victorian and Commonwealth Government funding. Students meeting eligibility criteria may receive a significant tuition fee reduction.


ERA's Allied Health Assistant Program is designed to run alongside students' university timetables. We provide flexible learning options and placement models to support students to meet all obligations.

Placement Hours

ERA's range of intake options covers even the most substantial student placement needs, including minimum practicum hours set by industry bodies. We work closely with our university partners to meet their unique needs.

"We are in the process of hiring our first Allied Health Assistant from ERA, who completed a placement with us at Vic Rehab.

I have received really positive feedback from the team with respect to your students professionalism and the ease of working with your head office team."

I really feel like I'm a part of the industry already, and I have had a really good amount of exposure and that's even before placement. It's made me really excited to work in the allied health industry!"
