A FULL WEEK OF Work Experience

Congratulations to all Year 10 students who have undertaken work experience this week. Work experience is a chance to really understand what a professional workplace is like and to be part of an organisation that is not usually accessible to secondary school students. Employers offer a glimpse into their daily working lives whilst educating work experience students regarding company requirements and roles available. No matter where a work experience placement is undertaken, it provides opportunity to develop employability skills, an understanding of work and to enhance workplace communications skills.  Preparation occurred during PLS classes to ensure students were ready with a clear understanding of workplace rights and responsibilities. Year 10 teachers visited placement sites throughout the week, and it was wonderful to see so many students engaged and happy. We are proud of the Year 10’s who were wonderful representatives of St Aloysius College and we thank all host employers for their support and encouragement.

A great start to Charley’s career

Australian School-based Apprenticeships allow students to work towards a nationally recognised qualification while completing their secondary school studies. The benefits for Year 12 student, Charley, have been immense as she works towards a Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology, guided by experts within the industry while gaining the latest knowledge and skills. Well done, Charley, we look forward to hearing of your future success!
