PASDV6 – Creative Manufacturing

Students will have involvement with various charities and organisation to nurture and create a healthy sense of community and self with all participating, they will also develop ongoing network and community support.
The skills and knowledge the students will learn and develop through this program can lead them on a pathway to employment, further education and or continued involvement in the community.
As part of their program, majority of students are required to do 1 day per week of Workplace Learning (WPL) during Terms 2 and 3. Their Workright Logbook is a necessary component of their course and will be checked weekly by the WPL Team and the students’ teachers. We shall be checking the logging of hours as well as the information about their tasks completed during the day. Doing work experience is an opportunity for the year 11 and 12 students to put into practice the skills learnt during their VET courses and the 9 Employability Skills. The information obtained through their logbook also assists in the preparation of a resume.
Our school is very privileged to have the support of many local Mandurah and surrounding areas businesses who kindly give your student a chance to gain experience – all of which will put them in good stead for post school transition/employment.
