Structured Work Placement Program

Mater Dei's Higher School Certificate Program offers post-compulsory education and training for students through an accredited curriculum that addresses social, recreational, work and living skills for a successful life after school. Students in Years 11 and 12 at Mater Dei have the opportunity to access post school compulsory education and training.

Students participate in the Structured Work Placement Program both in school and in the wider community. The skills developed during this regular work placement will be recognised as an integral part of the student's portfolio of life on leaving Mater Dei. Ongoing assessments address the issues of work skills, attitudes and self-esteem as well as interpersonal, leisure, recreational, decision-making and problem-solving skills.

Each student, parents/carers and the Pastoral Teacher collaboratively plan, assess and evaluate the Structured Work Placement Program.
