Work Experience (WEX)

Work experience at Erindale College provides students with an opportunity to try different career options, in a safe and supportive environment. It forms part of a student's broader career development and is not required to be linked to a specific course of study.

Erindale College has strong links with the work community and has dedicated career teachers who support students to make a career enhancing decision when selecting and organising a placement.

Work Experience placements assist students in their transition from school to work and aim to:

  • Provide students with an opportunity to relate school studies with a workplace
  • Give students an insight into the diversity of employees in the workplace
  • Prepare students for the demands and expectations of the working world
  • Help students make informed career decisions by assessing their aptitudes and interests, and exploring potential careers
  • Improve students’ maturity, confidence and independence
  • Provide a link between school and local community
  • Provide students with appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes concerning both paid and unpaid work
