Welcome to the World of Employment!

 

Work Experience

Work experience is often the foundational starting point for the transition to employment. Any student in Year 9, 10, 11 or 12 is able to undertake work experience any time throughout the year that is suitable to themselves and the school. A period of five days is generally utilised to begin with. This may take place either one day a week for five weeks, or for five days in a row (perfect for the school holidays).

Please see the ‘Related Links’ to learn more about the process of signing up for work experience.
   

 

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SATs)

School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs) allow high school students, in Years 10,11 or 12, to work for an employer and train towards a recognised qualification, while completing their secondary schooling and studying for their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

Centenary Heights has offered students the opportunity to undertake a SAT since 1998. During that time, over 1000 students have been signed to a SAT, and many have gone on to fulltime work in that area and are now qualified tradespeople/workers.

While SATs are available in a wide variety of areas (as per the list below), the Retail and Hospitality industries are providing the most opportunities in the current environment. The benefits of completing a SAT, in addition to being engaged in paid employment, are endless. They can provide students with knowledge and understanding that simply cannot be transferred within a school classroom.
