Workplace Learning

Workplace Learning information


Workplace Learning is an accredited School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) course for senior secondary students. The course largely takes place on-the-job in an allocated industry workplace, with in-class assignments to reinforce the workplace experience. La Salle College is part of the Onsite cluster, which coordinates students, employer training and supervises work placements. Onsite is the model by which Workplace Learning is delivered to students at La Salle College and six other Independent and Catholic schools in the metropolitan region. Students who apply and participate in the Onsite program are required to enrol in the Workplace Learning course at La Salle College.


The major goals of the Workplace Learning/Onsite program include:

  • To develop in students a wide range of work related competencies
  • To assist students with career planning
  • To increase self-esteem and confidence
  • To develop broader communication skills with people outside the school environment
  • To enable students to complete Year 12 and attain WACE Certification and also have the benefit of ongoing work-based experience and training
  • Through workplace experience, students may gain points for admission to TAFE
