Workplace learning is a program that provides students with the opportunity to develop work skills while continuing with their senior secondary education.
Students must complete a minimum of eight industry days in the workplace and demonstrate attainment of a minimum of 10 employability skills which have been verified by the workplace supervisor. At least one skill must be selected from each employability skills group.
As a workplace learning course, it is expected that the majority of the learning takes place in the workplace. Preparation for, and reflection on workplace learning may take place in the classroom context.
This unit is designed to introduce structured workplace learning. Students prepare for, and are placed in, a suitable workplace.
