Work Experience is a 5-day short-term placement of secondary school students in year 10. The City hopes to provide the student with insights into our industry, local government, and the workplace. While undertaking work experience, students will observe different aspects of work and may assist with tasks allocated by their supervisor, but will not be expected to undertake activities which require extensive training or expertise.
Unpaid University Placements provide, industry projects, fieldwork and other work integrated learning activities that is an essential part of many courses.
Placements provide an invaluable opportunity for students to explore real-life application of the skills and knowledge gained through their coursework study.
