Before students commence their work experience end of Term 2, their Life Skills & Wellbeing course prepares them for this invaluable experience. In class, Year 10 students will be learning how to develop and write their resume and explore options for work, as well as how to obtain an Australian tax file number.They also role play work interviews and refine their communication skills to ensure high performance in interviews, which are held externally with interviewers from various industries.Work Experience Week allows students to get an insight into working life. Students seek and apply for their own placements (with some assistance from the Careers Pathways Coordinator if required) and experience a working environment, find out more about a particular industry and just generally experience what it means to have to get up and go to work each day. They learn about safety in the workplace and how to be an organised, reliable and responsible worker. It is a compulsory component of the Year 10 program because these are essential life skills that assist students in developing their future career plans.
