Work Experience

All students in Years 10, 11 and 12 have the opportunity to participate in work experience. Students in Years 11 and 12 who wish to organise a work experience placement need to speak with staff in B Block staffroom to organise this placement.
Year 10 students will complete one week of work experience during the last week of Term 3. Students will provided with a preference form and are asked to complete the form listing 3 possible employers - with employer industry, name, address and contact details. Forms must be returned to B Block staffroom by 29 March 2018. 
Staff will contact employers as per student preference form, until a placement has been secured. We will endeavour to provide students with their completed Work Experience Agreement by the start of Term 3. Students will then be required to contact the host employer to make a suitable time to meet with them for signing of the Agreement. The signed Agreement must be returned to school by the end of Week 10, Term 2.
