A large number a Year 11 and Year 12 participate in the School’s Authority Developed Workplace Learning (ADWPL) program each year.  This program allows students to spend time working in businesses that suit their career aspirations to gain a real life experience of the duties, skills, standards and expectations of that particular industry.  Students may be placed with businesses for Workplace Learning on a one-day-per week basis or in blocks during school time or holiday or a combination of these arrangements.  Time spent in Workplace Learning also contributes to a student’s WACE completion. Students may participate in School Based Traineeships or Aboriginal School Based Traineeships.  Traineeships see students engaged in paid work for either one or two days each week and completing a Certificate II level qualification relevant to that occupation.  Students also complete the required courses at school to allow the students to achieve their WACE and participate in all other school activities.  Some of the qualifications that students may complete in Traineeships that include Business, Retail, Automotive, Hospitality, Tourism, Local Government, Information Technology, Hairdressing and Nail Technology.
