Work Experience 2023
At this time of the year all students in Year 10 are preparing to secure placements for work experience. Work Experience is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain an insight into the world of work and provides some unique possibilities for personal development.
We invite families and friends of SAC to make contact with Ms Julie Stephenson (Work Experience Coordinator) if you, or the organisation in which you work, can offer a placement to support one or more students. We are appreciative of workplaces who so generously host students as a gesture of goodwill while sharing their knowledge of a career area with a young person.
Year 10 students spend considerable time during Personal Learning Studies lessons to prepare for placement, including understanding of occupational health and safety and workplace requirements. As always, we look forward to visiting students out in the workforce in Term 2 where they so often thrive and shine.
