Year 11/12 ADWPL

Workplace Learning is an Authority-developed endorsed program that is managed by individual schools. To complete this endorsed program, a student works in one or more real workplace/s to develop a set of transferable workplace skills. The student must record the number of hours completed and the tasks undertaken in the workplace in the Authority’s Workplace Learning Logbook.

  • Less than 55 hours = 0 unit equivalents
  • 55 -- 109 hours = 1 unit equivalent
