Work experience for high school students

Work experience for high school students

The Victorian public sector offers work experience placements for Year 9 and Year 10 high school students.

Work experience provides high school students with an opportunity to develop skills and knowledge in the public sector, and explore career options at the same time.  

In a work experience placement, you'll get insights into how the Victorian Government works, as well as learning about the day-to-day operations of a particular business area.
