Work Experience Week allows students to get an insight into working life. Students seek and apply for their own placements (with some assistance from the Careers Coordinator if required) and experience a working environment, find out more about a particular industry and just generally what it means to have to get up and go to work each day. They learn about safety in the workplace and how to be an organised, reliable and responsible worker. It is a compulsory component of the Year 10 program because these are essential life skills that assist students in developing their future career plans.
Work Experience Placement is in Term 3 break, Monday 19th-Friday 30th, September 2016
