Direct Placement Work Experience

A great way for students to explore career options is to undertake work experience.  As part of the St Paul’s Careers Program, work experience is an option offered to students from Year 10 where they can experience life in the workforce first-hand.

During the short term placement, students observe and learn at an employer’s workplace gaining insight into work expectations as well as an understanding of the industry they have selected.

Work experience through school is often the first time students are exposed to the workforce and it is a great way for them to gain confidence and independence and learn more skills along the way.

The St Paul’s careers team makes contact with students who undertake work experience through the School to ensure the placement is going smoothly and students also have a direct contact within the careers team if they have any concerns.
