Authority Developed Workplace Learning (ADWPL)
School to work transition is a fundamental component of our Senior School program. Our personalised learning pathways include, for each student, a transition plan from year 9 which provides opportunities for students to gain practical experience in various workplaces, develop job seeking skills, learn about workplace safety and develop the skills and resilience to be successful in their chosen employment.
At work the students will be assessed on these Core Skills for Work (CSfW).
These skills are:
|Skills Clusters||Skill Areas|
