To provide students with experiences in taking direction from a supervisor, working independently, working as part of a team, showing respect for co-workers and supervisors, punctuality and OHS
To provide an opportunity for Belridge students to be involved in on- ground coastal conservation learning activities that will improve their opportunity for placement in other horticultural ventures such as garden, nursery centres and propagation nurseries
Provide educating and engaging experiences involving students and our community, and the benefits that it provides the Belridge students
Belridge Secondary Education Support Centre Workplace Learning (WPL) involves a variety of work experiences. Coastcare conservation is an extension to the schools current gardening learning.
The WPL program is a partnership but over a shorter timeframe of one or two terms, based on available volunteering support by suitably qualified rehabilitation specialists.
The limited involvement to-date, has found the skills students have gained in the Mullaloo Beach re-vegetation programs, have supported a deeper understanding of the Certificate I Agrifood course they are completing at school. All of the students who have attended our program, have achieved their Certificate I Agrifood Operations through North Metro TAFE.
