The students and the school have received some excellent feedback and most students – having logged 55 work hours or more – have earned points toward their WACE achievement on completing year twelve. Students have also learned and refined a myriad of skills that will hugely contribute to a positive future work-wise. Most importantly, students have come to understand some key employability skills that potential employers value greatly – being on time, personal presentation, reliability, demonstrating initiative, using different forms of communication and working with a team – just to name a few.
Most students will begin a new placement next semester – two employers, however, are very happy to offer a second placement to the student they are currently hosting.
Next term we will feature individual students in their respective workplaces in our newsletters to celebrate their success and allow younger students to appreciate future opportunities they can expect in coming years.
