Work Experience and Structured Workplace Learning

Parent Factsheet

Workplace learning programs allow students to experience life in the workplace and observe the way different jobs are done in the industry they have chosen. A positive workplace learning experience has lasting benefits not just for the student and their family, but also for the organisation with which they are placed and the people who take an interest in them while they are ‘at work’.

You may find it helpful to watch our industry-specific videos that provide advice to students on occupational health and safety issues relevant to their work placement.

For more information, see: Industry Overviews
