Work Shadow

You are here

The Work Shadow Program is designed to bring students, school, industry, and community partners together in the creation of a practical educational opportunity for high school students. This Program supports students to become 'work ready' and gain the confidence to be able to successfully undertake further career Education or employment.

The student participants will gain valuable experience and insight into the world of work through direct observation, hands on activities, and close engagement with professionals in a chosen area of work.

The ‘Work Shadow Program’ focuses on the preparation of the individual; the development of important employability skills, an understanding of employer expectations, as well as the preparation of the workplace to support the development of young people in these areas.  Participants are challenged to think beyond Year 12 and try a career opportunity that they find interesting.
