High School Work Experience Program

Many of our local schools run year 10 work experience programs. At Collaroy Vets we are supporters of the high school work experience program and offer places to students from several of our local schools, including Pittwater High and Northern Beaches Secondary College.

Work experience is part of the schools' educational program where students experience the world of work, often for the first time. It is the short term placement of secondary school students with employers, to provide insights into the industry, and the workplace in which they are located. Students are placed with employers primarily to observe and learn - and can be a great way to test drive careers.

We offer the student insight into several careers in animal care including Veterinary Science, Vet Nursing and Practice Management. Students are able to observe the clinic in operation and are invited to sit in consultations, surgeries and medical procedures. We hope our students leave their work placement enthused and eager for a career in animal care!
