Work Experience Program

At St Augustine's College we strive to prepare our students for the workplace with support from multiple staff including a dedicated Pathways Team, and various learning opportunities. One of the most successful and beneficial programs to date was our Year 10 Work Experience Program which took place over one week this year. Students expressed interest in an industry and were provided a placement with the help of our wider community. ​

Thanks to host businesses in the local area, students gained knowledge and practical experience working in a range of environments – from veterinary surgeries to engineering companies to art galleries and more. Over 150 students gained skills relevant to their chosen industry, with some students being offered part-time jobs or apprenticeships once the week was over. We were very proud of students' behaviour and attitude embracing this unique opportunity – they truly are future industry leaders. ​
