WORK EXPERIENCE

http://www.worksite.actu.org.au/

"The site has three key themes:

1. Getting the most out of work experience

Most students will be involved in structured work experience programs during Years 9 or 10 (or later). Worksite has a simple work experience diary that guides students through some of the key questions they may encounter during their work experience. The simple double sided A4 sheet guides students though important topics like pay rates, safety, leave and training, and encourages them to ask questions in their workplace.

2. What students need to know about work before starting their first job

Starting your first job is an important step in every young person’s life. Whether it is a casual job at the local supermarket, an apprenticeship or a graduate position – there are many ‘rules’ about work that students starting their first jobs will benefit from knowing. Worksite has simple fact sheets for job seekers about three important topics:

  • Getting the right pay
  • Knowing your rights
  • Being safe and smart in the workplace

3. Understanding the role of unions in shaping the working life of Australians

Unions have played an important role in shaping Australia and the way we work. Working hours, workplace safety, equal opportunity and better wages are all part of the union story. Worksite has fact sheets on the many aspects of daily working life that have changed due to union efforts, and are now seen as basic working rights."
