Work Experience

Work experience is the short-term placement of secondary school students with employers to provide insights into the industry and the workplace in which they are located. It provides students with the valuable opportunity to:

  • develop employability skills
  • explore possible career options
  • understand employer expectations
  • increase their self-understanding, maturity, independence and self-confidence.

Students are placed with employers primarily to observe and learn — not to undertake activities which require extensive training or expertise.


We rely on the support of local businesses to implement our work experience program and we are extremely thankful to those organisations who have so generously supported our students.


NEXT PLANNED WORK EXPERIENCE: Year 10-11, 27 November - 1 December


See Mr Beveridge to discuss any matters relating to work experience.
