Student Work Experience

Work Experience is available to Year 10, 11 and 12 students.

We will advise all students of the opportunities available to you and will give you the paperwork which needs to be signed by the employer, your parent(s), yourself and the school.

Marnebek will support you to find your own Work Experience placement, and provide you with all the tools you need to do this.

It is the student’s responsibility to travel to and from the work placement. This includes the initial interview.
The Careers teacher will visit each workplace prior to each student placement to conduct a Risk Assessment.

Willow Wood Aged Care
Located in Cranbourne, Willow Wood provides ageing-in-place in a warm, welcoming environment. After a successful pilot program in 2017, Marnebek students are warmly welcomed at Willow Wood.  Our students support the residents by participating in a busy roster of activities, which include playing board games, listening to music, singing songs and socialising! Willow Wood have landscaped gardens, a piano, a library and reading centres throughout the home. They have an on-site hairdressing salon and a billiards table for shooting some pool!  We are mindful that Willow Wood will be the first work experience placement for many students, so we drive the students to and from the premise on each placement day. Students participate in work experience at Willow Wood in small groups and are accompanied by a staff member who provides support, encouragement, engagement and supervision.
