Work Experience

Year 9 and 10 students who are interested in experiencing the world of work are encouraged to do so during weekends and school holidays. Note: Insurance will not be covered by the school.

Year 11 and 12 Non-ATAR students who are interested in applying for a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship may be allowed to undertake work experience for 1 day per week over 4 weeks during the school term.

Only students who are meeting the demands of the College regarding attendance, punctuality, uniform, application and behaviour will be considered for work experience.

Arranging a Placement
It is important that a student (with support from a parent/guardian) secure their own placement, where possible. Students gain experience from this, which builds confidence as it is similar to applying for a job.

Hours of Work
Work hours need to be discussed.  This is negotiable between the student and the provider. The student should take into consideration transport to and from work. Students are not paid for work experience.

Work Experience Agreement/Insurance
Work experience that occurs during a school term will require a Work Experience Agreement (WEA) so that the school can provide insurance coverage. This will be arranged through our Careers Centre. Insurance for work experience outside of school lies solely on the work experience provider.​
