Workplace learning supports students to gain exposure to the world of work, make career decisions and gain employability skills. Workplace learning is a broad term that covers work placement programs including structured workplace learning and work experience. Time is set aside for students to complete work placement in Term 2 and Term 4 (this can be negotiated at another time depending on employer and student availability).
Work experience provides an opportunity for students to take part in a short-term industry placement, giving them exposure to and an awareness of the world of work, and potential career pathways.
Structured Work Placements are linked to the VET program which the student is undertaking and may be provided on the job, by a teacher or trainer in a school, or by another training organisation.
The workplace learning agreement form, including the WHS checklist can be found via a link below. This must be completed and signed by all parties and returned to the VET/Pathways Coordinator a week prior to commencing the workplace learning to be processed.
