Work Experience

Work Experience placements allow Ruru Specialist School students to experience the world of work by offering opportunities both from within and outside of School.

  • Work experience placements offer students the opportunity to enhance existing knowledge or to learn new skills in a job that that the student is interested in having a deeper understanding of.
  • Any placement considers the learning goals and abilities of the student.
  • Work experience will be incorporated into ICP goals with Unit Standard credits as applicable/appropriate.

The work experience itself will provide students with further opportunities to increase their confidence and independence and practise new social skills.
