Dear Parents/Carers The Department of Education have recently advised that Work Experience will be permitted this year and Braidwood Central School will be offering this opportunity for year 9 and 10 students. However, unlike previous years participation will not be mandatory. Work experience provides children with the opportunity to learn about an occupation and/or industry by observation and participation. Students can build their knowledge, develop their skills and networks to aid them to make informed decisions about their future study and career paths. It is the responsibility of the student and parent/carer to source and organise a work experience placement. Information is available on the process from the school; however, the student and their parent/carer are accountable for the organisation and follow-up of the placement. Not only is the actual work experience invaluable, but the process of organising your own work experience is incredibly beneficial. Please discuss this with your child and if they would like to participate please complete and return page 2 to Mrs Sharon Blinco by no later than Friday 3rd July. Due to the short turnaround time this year applications received after this date cannot processed so, if you have any questions please contact Mr Mick Wall or Mrs Sharon Blinco prior to this date.
