HSC VET Work Placement provides our young people with the opportunity to experience a ‘taste’ of the industry of their choice. For young people, Work Placement is the first time in a workplace and can be the most valuable means of building Employability Skills, understanding career pathways and influencing career decisions prior to starting further education and work.
Work Placement students are in Year 11 and 12, are studying a Cert I or II in their chosen industry and come with genuine enthusiasm and basic skills. Work Placement students are also interested and willing to learn about the world of work and what it takes to enter the workforce. Some students are actively looking for apprenticeships and traineeships and use their Work Placement to realise their employment goals.
COMPACT’s professional staff are connected to over 4000 employers across the Riverina Murray region, and facilitate Work Placements on behalf of schools and EVET providers in specific industries.
