Workplace Learning is one of the most important areas students will be involved with at Cyril Jackson Senior Campus Education Support Centre. Our Workplace Learning Program educates and provides students with the necessary skills to enable a successful transition from school to the workforce.
Students attend work experience either independently or supported by staff. Being a part of the workforce brings with it many changes, and these changes require new skills, many of which can only be successfully taught at the workplace.

Before any work experience begins, all students attend a Manual Handling course supported by staff.
Students will first be introduced to work experience in an “enclave” situation. This is where two or more students work together at a workplace supervised by one or more staff. Students are taught the necessary skills required in the workplace and are assessed by staff.
Students are taught how to travel safely using public transport to their work placement. Staff travel with the students until they are confident in their ability to travel independently.
