The work related skills outcomes are also based upon the VCAL model and aim to develop students employability skills, knowledge and attitudes that are valued within the community and the work environment in preparation for their entry into employment. Employability skills are those that reflect personal attitudes valued by employers. These include motivation, adaptability, enthusiasm, relationship management and work ethics. The students will undertake a course in occupational health and safety, a prerequisite for work placement. To support the individual needs of each student the level of work they complete varies from a Pathway 1, Pathway 2 or Foundation VCAL level.
