Work Placement Works
Work placement for students and young people works.
The latest research from Britain says that school students who have had at least 4 quality interactions with employers are 5 times more likely to be in Education, Employment or Training when they are 19-24. In other words, the more quality experiences you can get with employers while still at school – the better.
The Bright Future Campaign aims at attracting more employers to be involved in these programs.
Agencies involved in coordinating this placement gathered at the Pullman Hotel in Sydney discuss the future of placements. Some shared their positive stories with us.
