There's nothing like on-the-job experience when it comes to thinking about career choices.Our Workplace Learning Coordinators Program makes it possible for young people aged 15-19 to try out different jobs, meet local employers and gain beneficial work experience. They do this by facilitating and coordinating:
We work with government and non-government secondary schools, TAFEs, Adult and Community Education providers, industry, local employers and Koorie community representatives to identify local skill and student learning needs and to generate workplace learning opportunities for young people.
VETiS and VCAL students need to complete a Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) component as part of their program. Students undertake on-the-job training where they are expected to master skills and competencies. A great opportunity for students to develop employability skills.

Secondary school students can take part in work experience where they have an opportunity to observe and learn about the particular job, workplace or industry where they are placed. These are short term placements with host employers.
