Structured Workplace Learning

Structured Workplace Learning

Structured Workplace Learning is initially offered to students starting in Year 10 as a work experience placement, and then through Year 11 & 12 through their VM/VPC program. There are three options offered to students to complete Workplace Learning depending on the VCE/VM/VPC/VET program that they are completing at Year 10 to 12.

DET Policy Guidelines must be adhered to for each Workplace Learning Option prior, during, and following the period of Work Placement.

Work Experience

Work Experience is offered to Year 10 and 11, and usually arranged around exams, the urban orientation excursion and other school activities. A Work Experience Handbook which has information on why, how, and where of Work Experience will be handed out to relevant students. All students are strongly encouraged to complete at least a week of Work Experience in both Year 10 and Year 11.

Work Placement

As part of the students VM/VPC course, there is a requirement of participating in one day a week employment in an area aligned with either their current VET course, or their chosen career pathway. Work placement is a great way of exploring new career choices and building relationships with local employers. You never know where these opportunities can lead!!!
