ORIENTATION FOR 2023 NEW STUDENTS
WEDNESDAY 16 NOVEMBER
New 2023 students are required to attend orientation in the program they are enrolled in on Wednesday 16 November for most WEC courses. Orientation will introduce you to your teacher/trainer, who will explain or summarise what you will learn, visit your classroom or workshop, confirm class times, student expectations, pathways information, and what next.
Students' home school will notify enrolled students of the time and venue of the Orientation Session.
The videos on the OUR PROGRAMS page provides students insights to what to expect in the course they have enrolled into. Below are
videos developed by the trainers for most programs.
Program flyers on the "OUR PROGRAMS" page show career and pathway information. The "WEC HANDBOOK 2023" outlines "Course Requirements"; "Course Summaries"; and the "Student Behaviour Guidelines" that will be discussed further, with any questions you have at the Orientation Session.
