MWLP provides a convenient ‘one-stop-shop’ service for businesses, schools and TAFE colleges in addressing a significant (and mandatory) HSC learning need for courses in skill shortage areas such as:
By being involved in Work Placement, young people gain a better understanding of the world of work and are given a chance to develop their technical and general employability skills in the workforce.
MWLP is funded by the NSW Government to provide this service.
Work Placement provides you with an opportunity to try out new skills and obtain practical workplace skills, both general & industry specific.
Work Placement helps your child build on their skills and gain new ones, by participating in an actual work environment related to the course they are studying as part of their HSC.
MWLP have been working closely with local high schools and TAFE colleges for more than twenty years to facilitate Work Placements for HSC VET, BEC and TAFE Launchpad courses.
Our Work Placement program gives local businesses a look at potential future employees and an opportunity to connect with their community.
MWLP coordinates Work Placements for more than 6,000 HSC students from 90 schools and TAFE’s in the Macarthur, Canterbury-Bankstown and Inner South-West regions each year. We currently have over 500 Host Employers to cover placements across 30 different VET, BEC and TAFE Launchpad courses.
Over the past three years MWLP has worked at refining a Work Placement delivery model to overcome the challenges faced in providing quality placements for Business Services students.
The purpose of our Youth’ank Hub is to provide a way for local Business Services students to complete their mandatory 35 hours of work placement. This project has the added benefits of serving the local community through existing charity organisations as well as giving students community service experience.
