Work experience is recognised by our department as playing an integral part in:
- the total career education program for students, those without employment, those investigating new careers and migrants wishing to develop their previous work experience
- enhancing our department’s relationships with education institutions and other relevant organisations.
Where appropriate and resources allow, the our department may participate in work experience programs. Work experience may include tertiary workplace experience programs, developed in conjunction with educational institutes (e.g. Muresk Agricultural College).
Participants work on a project relevant to our department and the career ambitions of the student. Work experience places are unpaid opportunities though contributions to the costs of attending the workplace may be provided, in limited circumstances, at the discretion of our department. Requests seeking a work experience placement should briefly outline the area of career interest and expectations should a placement be approved.
