Work experience program

Introduction to a career in industry

If you’re not quite ready to start an apprenticeship or traineeship, you may want to consider our Work Experience Placement Program. Through this program, CSBP provides opportunities for students interested in our industry to gain exposure and determine whether a science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) career is right for you.

Is a work experience placement for you?

The work experience program is suitable for:

  • Secondary school students
  • Students enrolled in relevant vocational study

Traditionally, placements in the following streams have been approved:

  • Mechanical Engineering (Mechanical Fitting)
  • Electrotechnology (Industrial Electrician)
  • Process Operations

Requests outside of these streams are considered on a case-by-case basis.

All work placements are unpaid and are available only when an opportunity arises. Applicants must be covered by their sponsoring institution’s professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
