Work Placement - around and about
Thank you to Coastline Credit Union - Port Macquarie who have taken their first 
Work Placement student, Tim McVerry from Newman Senior Technical College.

Mid Coast Connect hosted Joshua Hughes from Wauchope High School for his Information and Digital Technology placement. Joshua organised dual screens at workstations, hooked up speakers and ensured all the cables were arranged for a safe workplace and provided quality admin support. He was invaluable for the block week.

Work placement prepares senior school and TAFE students for employment. Students studying VET courses as part of their HSC are given the opportunity to learn practical skills through experience and practice in the workplace.
