Work Experience Week

In Week 8 of Term 2, Year 10 students headed out on work experience for four days. Preparation occurred during PLS classes to ensure students were prepared 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 with workplace learning. We were 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.

It was wonderful to see so many students engaged with workplace learning

This year we also offered an internal program as an alternative option for work experience. Students participated in a virtual work experience for two days and attended employment preparation workshops for two days. They completed resumes, cover letters, joined presentations on first impressions and participated in a mock interview process. We were impressed with students who took information and advice on board which reflected in their preparation for the interviews where they dressed to impress!

Congratulations to all involved!
