Accessing Work Experience Through School - Wed 2 February

  • 02 February 2022
  • 10:00am - 11:30am
  • Online

Learn how to successfully navigate work experience opportunities for your young person while at school. Work Experience should be a positive experience for the student and start them on their journey towards paid, open and meaningful employment.  Individualised experiences based on the young person’s interests, skills and abilities can have the best outcomes and should be the ultimate goal.  During this webinar we will cover:

  • Working with schools to ensure optimum work experience
  • Why starting early is essential
  • Identifying suitable work placements
  • Engaging with employers
  • Getting the supports right
  • How to successfully approach roles and tasks

This new webinar is for families of secondary school students who are considering work experience in the future.  Education, health and disability professionals are invited as well.
