Students of Work Education in Stage 4 demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the world of work and the range of organisations and sectors that make up our community including the local community and wider Australian community. They demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the relationships between education, employment and training systems as they relate to planning and managing their own life transitions. They can describe the types of work available in their community and identify and discuss the characteristics and features of many work opportunities. This includes paid or unpaid work, self-employment and other work opportunities. Students recognise appropriate forms of behaviour in work and other contexts. Students recognise a variety of education, employment and training organisations and opportunities within their community. They understand the roles that these organisations may play in planning their futures. Students identify goals and personal pathway plans. Students recognise and track their own skills and attributes including employability and enterprise skills. Students research a range of issues using a number of techniques and tools.
