Year 10 Work Experience
Work Experience is an integral part of the Year 10 curriculum intended to introduce all Year 10 students to an understanding of the workplace. Since Year 10 is a pivotal year for such things as subject selections for Years 11 and 12, Work Experience is an opportunity to begin to explore future career options.
The Work Experience Program is a compulsory element of the Year 10 curriculum. This one week program takes place at the beginning of Term 3. Students will be provided with instruction in Occupational Health and Safety as a prelude to workplace induction by their employer. The Work Experience Guidelines must be given to the employer at the time of arranging the work placement.
It is the individual student’s responsibility to arrange a work placement.
