Work Experience

Parks Victoria runs a work experience program for secondary school students over 15 years of age. The program runs from 15 May to 30 November. We welcome the opportunity to educate students on the work we do and to assist school students in making more informed career choices.

Work experience is an arrangement that exists between schools and Parks Victoria and we ensure that we comply with all relevant legislation when implementing such arrangements.
