This popular course allows students the opportunity to gain and develop employability skills in the workplace. Students are required to complete two log books and assessment tasks. In the log books, the students record hours of work, Occupational Safety and Health issues relevant to their place of employment and keep a record of daily tasks. They also record demonstration of 10 employability skills which are signed off by their employer.
Each student attends two workplaces each year and gains experience and skills in a supportive environment. The log books are also an excellent resource for those students who may wish to apply to GSIT once they have left school as they provide written evidence of workplace experience and employability skills.
Before starting their work placement, students attend an Induction session to learn about OSH and initial contact with their employer among other things. Once in the program, students attend their workplace one day a week on a Tuesday or Thursday, working the normal work hours for that business or industry.
Many students combine Workplace Learning with Vocational and Educational Training courses delivered at Albany Senior High School and/or Great Southern Institute of Technology.
