Year 10 Work Experience Program

 

As part of the Pimpama State Secondary College Year 10 SET Plan program, all Year 10 students are given the opportunity to attend a Work Experience placement in their chosen area of interest during Week 3 of Term 3 (24 July – 28 July 2017).  Participation in the Work Experience program is integral to effective SET Planning.  Students will need to find their own Work Experience placement in order to maximise the experience, however, we can assist with a placement if needed. The Work Experience Program will familiarise students with working conditions and employer expectations. In addition, the program offers students the opportunity to sample a specific type of work, and also promotes personal and social development.

The conditions of the Pimpama State Secondary College Work Experience program are based on The Education (Work Experience) Act 1996.  The Education Act states students:

·    are 14 years & over;

·    receive no payment in money or kind;

·    work 5 days during normal working hours for the industry;

·    are covered by Workers Compensation; and

· employers are covered by an indemnity policy taken out by Education Queensland.
