VCAL, VET and Work Placements
A group of 68 VCE and VCAL students commenced studying their VET courses last week, with some students yet to be enrolled.
Just a reminder to parents of VET students that the cooling off period and withdrawal from a course at The Gordon without incurring fees is March, 1 2017. After this date full VET fees will apply. As part of their studies, VCAL students carry out structured workplace learning all day on Friday’s during the school terms.
To support some of the students, we are looking for potential work placements from people in our community who might be able to offer a student work experience, or know of someone who can. The industries we are currently in need of placements for are: Electrical, IT, Beauty, Childcare, Fashion/Clothing, Community Service, Agriculture and Building and Construction. Please contact Kerryn Fearnsides at the Senior Campus if you are able to help our young people.
