Placement Opportunities

Clinical Placements

Are you currently studying exercise or sport therapies/science, or even thinking of becoming an exercise physiologist?  Let us help enter you into a world of endless possibilities.

Part of the accreditation process of becoming an Exercise Physiologist is to undertake 500 hours of clinical practicum placement in various fields of rehabilitation.
At The Next Step we have close relationships with a number of universities and educational development organisations to offer an invaluable opportunities to students to provide supervised hours to contribute towards accreditation or work experience.

The student placements here at The Next Step not only involve exposure to the spinal cord injury population, but also encourages our students to participate in exercise prescription, clinical notes and spinal cord injury research.

The placements allow the students to engage with and assist our recovery specialists with our athletes in a supported environment while participating in session planning, preparing clinical notes, being educated in risks and complications associated with spinal cord injury and in the final weeks of their placements are asked to plan and run a exercise physiology session with one of our incredible TNS athletes.

Work Experience

We are always on the hunt for secondary students to assist us either on our gym floor, or with the technical side of our operations.

If you are wanting to gain experience working one on in a clinical but motivational environment, or even want to help us with our Social Media or Videography, we’d love to hear from you!
