Work Experience

Work Experience is a 1-10day placement, where students are to participate in the workplace operations under close supervision and instruction. This allows our students to gain (often for the first time)  ‘world of work' experiences.

Work Experience allows our students to:

Explore first hand the nature of the ‘world of work' and the ‘workplace' during a pre-planned supervised placement.

Be introduced to industries, occupations and jobs within our community.

Gain firsthand workplace learning experiences

Thus it is a major part of their understanding of the ‘world of work' and how they see themselves participating in the ‘work of work' once they leave school.
