Employment, Traineeship and Work Experience News

Year 10 Work Experience

Unfortunately the decision has been made to suspend school work experience until further notice. This means the school will not support any TCC student entering a workplace for work experience. Employers have been notified in relation to this decision. It is disappointing that this has happened as work experience plays a significant role for many students in choosing their career path.  Hopefully work experience can continue again later in the year.
