​​Work Experience

Clairvaux Mackillop's Career Pathways Department supports and guides students in senior school for successful transitions into their future work and career pathways. Our college recognizes that students need access to skills and opportunities to be competitive in a rapidly changing job market. Through a strong network of business relationships and support from SCIPS (School Community Industry Partnership Service), senior students can access meaningful career development opportunities.

Our students are provided the opportunity to develop transferrable skills to better prepare them for the work environment. These transferrable skills develop through the Work Experience program delivered to students in years 10, 11 and 12 and structured work placement conducted through VET subjects.

The Work Experience program allows students to take up work experience in exam blocks, up to 3 times in a year for non-op students. OP students may also access work experience opportunities through their school holiday periods with support from the Career Pathways Department. Students may also present their own employers to gain work experience from as part of their program. Our students can also apply for the Defence Force Work experience programs available throughout the year.

This program provides students with opportunities to try working in varied environments, which allows them to make informed choices for their preferred career pathway. The Career Pathways Department strives to arrange holistic offerings in job ready activities to ensure that Clairvaux Mackillop students are valuable candidates for future employers.​
