Year 10 Careers Experience Program - June 24-28

As part of Year 10 and the Careers Curriculum in 2019, all Year 10 students will undertake one week of Work Experience Placement. 'Careers Experience' allows students to develop key transferable skills which link directly to the classroom through better engagement, learning and achievement. Careers Experience allows students to develop these skills in an authentic environment, investigate a future career path and to see the connections between future study areas and the world of work. In preparation, students last year received a 'Careers Experience Handbook' and Information Pack and commenced researching and contacting possible placement locations.

Year 10 Students 

Please be actively seeking to finalise your placement arrangements and, once the Work Experience Arrangement Form has been signed by the employer, yourself and a parent/carer, return the form to the Careers Centre. 

All students should have arrangements finalised by March 16th.
