Work Experience

​Work Experience


Unfortunately, a qualification isn’t always enough to enter your dream job. Even jobs that are described as being entry level or that are at the lower end of the pay scale may require previous work experience.

Completing work experience shows employers that you are passionate and willing to do whatever it takes to land a job in your field. It can also help you narrow down your employment options. ​​

Clairvaux MacKillop's Career Pathways Department arranges the necessary work experience agreements and scheduling to do work experience while at school. Students are encouraged to seek their own work experience placements, and can still seek support for a placement if required. The work experience blocks are the first week of the school holidays for term 1, 2 and 3. Additional work experience days or placement blocks can be requested directly to the Career/VET Pathways Program Leader.

​To arrange work experience, please visit the Career Pathways Departnment for assistance.
