Year 10 Work Experience

Monday 29th August 2016 - Friday 2nd September 2016
As part of the year 10 Futures program this year, students are doing Career Development. Work experience is a valuable tool of career development and allows students to sample real work experiences, in areas of interest, and informs their decisions regarding subject selection for Year 11 and Year 12. The school has set aside one week in term 3 (29/08/2016 to 02/09/2016) for this to be done.
Students will be expected to find their own placement and it is recommended they seek their work placement in an industry that they are keen to learn about. This is an opportunity for them to experience and learn about an industry they may wish to work in once they have finished school. It is also a great opportunity for students to gain skills that will be valuable in the work force and a great addition to their resumes. Students do not get paid for Work Experience.
Some industries may have additional requirements that they insist on and these may include a police check for Aged Care Facilities, some childcare centres require a Blue Card and all construction sites require a White Card. Mrs Ford (Industry Liaison Officer) can assist in the application for most of these cards but the students are required to pay any costs involved.
Students will receive a pack that will contain a number of forms that are required to be filled in by the students, parents and employers. These forms include student and employer details, insurance information, student checklist and a letter for your employer. Once students have confirmed a placement they are required to get
all paperwork signed by the employer and leave the insurance information with them. All signed paperwork must be returned to their Futures teacher by the 29 July 2016.
If you have any questions in relation to the Work Experience please don't hesitate to contact Mrs Brandis on 5573 8555 or
