Year 10 Work Experience Dates: 2017

Work Experience Forms are being distributed by the Year 10 Humanities Teachers and need to be returned to your Humanities Teacher by the due date.  These forms will consist of the “Official Departmental Permission Form” and a Form outlining the students Work Experience Preferences (3 Job Preferences are required).

Students can choose to do Work Experience in Warrnambool from the list of positions provided in the Work Experience Booklet – handed out with the forms.

Note:  Work Experience is just that – an “Experience of Work.” It is not meant to be job training.  Many employment positions – especially professions do not allow students to undertake work experience at Year 10 due to the sensitivity of the position or the maturity of Year 10 students.  Many students therefore choose positions that might help them to find a part-time employment position.

Students are also required to complete an on-line, Occupational Health & Safety Program before being allowed to undertake Work Experience.

Students from Year 11 & 12 may undertake Work Experience during normal Holiday breaks. All Work Experience enquiries should be directed to Mr Bollard.

Work Experience – Year 10, 11 & 12 – 2016 Block Dates

Year 10 Students:

All year 10 students are strongly encouraged to undertake Work Experience with your Form Group. This will be organised by Mr Bollard via your Year 10 Humanities Class Teacher.

Work Experience is about learning to develop your generic employment skills. It is not about job training but rather about work shadowing, where you work with people and learn more about the workforce. The idea is to take you out of your comfort zone and immerse you an environment that is not that familiar to you. Its about how to work with people, to be flexible and adaptable. All the skills you need to be successful in the modern workforce. In essence its is about improving your personal skills and make you aware of all the opportunities our community (Employers in particular) can offer you. Many students are offered part-time or casual positions as a result of completing a Work Experience placement. Employers complete an evaluation form and you can use this as evidence of your involvement and it may help you obtain other positions in the future. Most employers looking for apprentices will want to see at least 2 or 3 Work Experience reports as evidence of your commitment and interest in the trade before they will consider you for a full-time position.
