Work experience is a valuable way for potential employees to become more job-ready and to find out what work in the industry entails, as well as giving employers the chance to work with and assess potential employees. In the hospitality industry work experience can be supported through the VET in Schools program (see separate section) or through a range of other programs including the Australian Government’s National Work Experience Program.
The National Work Experience Programme is part of jobactive. It is a work experience programme which places job seekers in real life work experience placements. It helps jobseekers gain experience and confidence, while demonstrating skills to potential employers.
