Work Related Skills Units for implementation in 2020

Lisa Brown, VCAL teacher, VET coordinator, Careers advisor, Bellarine Secondary College

With new WRS units in effect this year, this Masterclass is a great opportunity to get your head around it! This Masterclass will cover the changes to the WRS units and give you and your students the insights and confidence to undertake the units in a meaningful way.

Other topics covered in this Masterclass are:

  • policies and procedures for structured workplace learning and work experience
  • preparing your students for SWL and WE
  • creating partnerships within and outside your school setting

Links with the wider community and employers are important to Work Related Skills and students involved experience success with this. Lisa will provide several examples of planning and delivering engaging WRS projects that are student driven, teacher assisted and whole class driven to help build ideas and add to your VCAL resources.

* 6.5 hours of PL towards Australian Professional Standards for Teachers; Standards 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 & 7
