Our organisation believes that as a community leader, we have a role to play in providing learning opportunities for the community.

Where possible, within the constraints of available resources, we encourage our business units to participate in work experience programs.

We do this through the provision of placements for:

  • High school students;
  • Higher education students such as TAFE and university students; and,
  • Adult learners undertaking a program of study.

See details below on applying for work experience with Wodonga Council.

Applying for work experience: High School Students

Through our partnership with NELLEN (North East Local Learning & Employment Network), we are able to provide work experience opportunities for high school students from Wodonga and our surrounding region.

If you are a high school student who would like to participate in our work experience program, please express your interest by using the NELLEN portal to apply for our current opportunities.

The NELLEN portal will be open for expressions of interest for a period for upcoming opportunities in the following term.

Workers compensation over is held by the Department of Education to cover students on placement and/or work experience. This includes students from secondary schools, TAFE institutions, universities and community colleges.

The details of this cover will be outlined in the student's work experience agreement form provided by their educational institution.

The student cannot commence their placement without this form being completed and returned to our People and Culture team.
