ONSITE – Workplace Learning (ADWPL) *
Workplace Learning is an endorsed program that provides an opportunity for a student to demonstrate and develop the core skills for work, referred to as generic, transferable or employability skills. Students learn to apply and adapt these skills that are necessary to understand and carry out different types of work.
Developing workplace skills aids an individual to gain employment, and in the longer term, to progress within the organisation or industry area in which they are employed, and to contribute successfully to the organisation’s objectives and to the wider community.
The program consists of two placements per year where students attend their chosen workplace one day a week for approximately 10 weeks.
