        an introduction to Go2Workplacement program;

Go2Workplacement - Are your students work ready?

Go2workplacement complements existing school based, work ready activities so that students get the maximum benefit from their time in the workplace. By completing online modules students identify specific skills and competencies to focus on during their work placement.

On completion of go2workplacement students are awarded a Work Placement Ready Certificate that outlines skills and attributes they want to develop during their work placement. The Certificate should be signed by the VET teacher. It provides a host employer with an assurance the student is prepared for their placement and enables them to tailor the placement to the student.

Go2workplacement also enables VET teachers to monitor student completion of the Work Placement Ready Certificate to determine which students are ready for their work placement. You can print out completed Certificates and sign these for your students.

Go2workplacement can be completed on a PC or a mobile device. It can be undertaken as a class activity or in the student’s own time.

Tip: Make sure students use headphones if this is a class activity.

Tip: It is recommended teachers complete their own Work Placement Ready Certificate to familiarise themselves with the content of the modules. They can then assist students who experience problems completing the modules.
