Yass High School Vocational Education (VET) students are learning valuable work skills on their structured workplace learning program before being placed with Yass Valley employers. Last week they completed qualifications to ensure they are ready for work. They are working towards industry standard qualifications in Construction, Hospitality, Metals and Engineering, Primary Industries and Information Technology. The placements are coordinated by Southern Region Business Enterprise Council Workplace Coordinator, Carissa Mills.

Local employers have been exceptional in providing relevant and rewarding placements in the program. They recognise the value of supporting our young people to become skilled, confident members of their local workforce and contribute to their local community.

All students have completed essential competencies including working in their industry area, and the construction students have all completed their "Industry White Card". Many have also completed the Asbestos Awareness Training to make them employable in ACT. Each student has a Work Placement Journal with sections on safety, confidentiality, a logbook and performance evaluation. Students are required to complete a workplace induction before beginning the week's work. Placements for most will start early next term with a second placement in term 4, but some, like Emily Polsen, Natasza Johnston, and Adam Fahey are getting credit for their work now. Emily is working at the Sydney Royal Easter Show starting this week, and Adam and Natasza offer tech support to staff and students at Yass High School.

Parents, employers, and students should be on the lookout for important work placement documentation and agreements over the next few weeks to allow all students to complete their mandatory work placement.

At Yass High School, our students have a strong reputation for their employability in the local community and beyond with experienced trainers and strong community support giving them a head start over other school leavers. With the opening of the new Yass High School Community Trade Skills Centre, all students have industry standard facilities in which to complete their Certificate courses and prepare for industry.

The trainers are also continuing to maintain industry currency by working with local employers to learn skills.
