Volunteers and Placements


Volunteering at Burwood East Special Developmental School
Students reap huge benefits from interacting with people willing to volunteer their time here at school. You are welcome to contact us if this is something you are interested in undertaking. We have to balance this with our commitment to Child Safety Standards and procedures; therefore, a valid Working With Children Check is required.

Professional Placements
It's fantastic that you are interested in completing a placement at BESDS! During the year we welcome teachers, education support staff and therapists. We are a small school and demand for placements is high - please ask your professional placement organisers to get in touch with us as early as possible in the year.
