Vocational Educational Training and Workplace Learning
Workplace Learning (WPL) provides students with the opportunity to experience the workplace first hand.
There are many advantages for the students who undertake WPL. Not only do they gain points towards their WACE, but also a better understanding of what is required of them in the workplace, build on skills that they have already learnt at school or TAFE and to assist in making bigger picture decisions on future pathways. The advantages are just one way, for employers they gain a better understanding of our young people and have the chance to guide and assist the students with their futures.
At Armadale Senior High School we have a network of employers that are more than willing to help out our students. These range from small local firms to big international companies. We are always looking to widen our network to give student the best prospects for the future.
At Armadale Senior High School WPL is a compulsory part of some of our VET courses, but all students can have the opportunity to complete WPL.
