Community Work Crew

The Community Work Crew pathway appeals to students interested in the outdoors. This course enables development of student employability skills and community connections and is structured by the Materials Design and Technology Preliminary Course work written by the Curriculum and Standards Authority. Students learn skills such as how to work in a team, use a variety of tools and small hand held machines, explore and use materials such as wood with the aim of designing and producing a product and how to maintain a garden.

They apply these skills in real life situations in the Albany community such Camp Quaranup and Hawthorne House, giving their learning purpose and meaning. These skills are then further developed in Workplace Learning placements, potential TAFE courses, traineeships and potential employment.
