'Young Workers' Workshop

'Young Workers' Workshop

The Year 11 VCAL students undertook a workshop/presentation with James from the Young Workers Centre in Melbourne via Zoom.

James' presentation covered their rights and entitlements as young workers and outlined bullying and sexual harassments issues in the workplace.

Here are some reflections from students:

Dear James,

Thanks very much for taking the time out of your day to teach us all about the issues and pitfalls for young people starting out in the workforce, especially making sure you get a pay slip, correct hourly rate and bullying and harassment.

Thanks Joseph.

Dear James,

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to talk to us VCAL students about the workplace. I greatly appreciated the knowledge and advice we received from you yesterday. I learnt a lot about workplace bullying and harassment as well as learning about how your payslip should look like and what's wrong and right when it comes down to how you should be paid. Once again I would like to thank you for the time and knowledge you left with me yesterday.
