Work Experience or SWL
Year 10 Work Experience or Structured Workplace Learning
This is a compulsory part of the Year 10 program. Students in the Applied Learning program complete Structured Workplace Learning (SWL), which enables a ‘hands-on’ vocational placement. All other Year 10 students complete Work Experience, which provides a valuable opportunity to observe and learn about a career of interest. In both cases, this can assist students with making more informed decisions about subjects to study, programs, courses and future careers. By providing the students with an ‘out of the classroom’ experience, students are given an insight into the world of employment and gain valuable employability skills for the future.
