Instep is our work experience program for students on a General/VET pathway which allows students to experience a work place in their chosen career area. This experience often assists students to make invaluable decisions regarding their career pathway.

The completion of one placement also contributes a grade C equivalent towards WACE.

Step 1: Start by doing some research

Open days are your chance to find out more about a University and see if it’s right for you, so it helps to have done a little bit of research beforehand. Have a look at courses of interest and the requirements of the course. Look at the course content and come up with some questions before you go.

Step 2: Plan your open day schedule

Have a look online at the University Open Day schedule so that you can plan to see the things that are most useful to you.

Step 3: Ask questions

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Present students studying the course can give you an insight to the demands and content of the course. Try and find out more about how the course will be taught and how you’ll be assessed. Also ask about opportunities to enhance your degree. Is work experience an option? Will you get the chance to study abroad? Are double degrees available?

Step 5: Follow up with further research

You’ve been to open days, collected information, asked questions and checked out the facilities and services on campus. This is the ideal time to follow up with some extra research. Start by creating a shortlist of institutions and courses that caught your eye. Think carefully about what you want to study, how you want to learn and where you want to do it. You can call the institution to speak to a student adviser, drop by the campus or get in touch online. Consider visiting your career adviser (if you’re in school) and having a chat to friends, family or industry professionals. Once you’ve covered this step, you’ll be ready for the application period.
