About Work Placement


Subject choices at schools now include Industry Developed, entry level courses that give young people a great kick start to a future career in the field they are studying. These courses require them to complete work placements and is a compulsory component of Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses. These courses are recognised by Australian Industry and NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) and include:

Automotive, Business Services, Construction, Electrotechnology, Entertainment, Hospitality, Human Services, Information & Digital Technology, Metal & Engineering, Primary Industries, Retail and Tourism.

Work Placement allows the students to practice what they are learning at school and enhance the skills they have learnt in the classroom. To demonstrate and hone these skills students are required to complete 2 weeks of work placement (1 week in Year 11 & 1 week in Year 12) for each course with a local business which we help arrange through their school/TAFE.
