Thirty of our Year 11 and 12 students have just completed two weeks of workplace learning, gaining invaluable experience across a variety of fields.
The students were placed into either electrical, mechanical or marine fields, and some pursued their interest in areas such as the police force, hospitality, interior design, education, small business and real estate.
“This is a wonderful experience for the boys to be a part of real work places. They gain real-life experience and can determine whether these occupations are something they would like to pursue in the future,” explains Career Counsellor, Ms Jody Clarke.
“Workplace learning gives credit to the boys’ WACE score and many of these placements lead to offers of apprenticeship.”
The students complete four work placements during Years 11 and 12 while not undertaking a full ATAR course.
