Work experience with Sunshine Coast Council

Do you know what you want to be when you grow up, yet?

There can be a lot of pressure in those final schooling years to have your chosen career sorted and a path to get there. Whether you’re still figuring out what interests you or you’re so ready, you wish you were graduated already, our Work Experience Program gives you a taste of what to expect.

Students gain a valuable introduction to working in local government along with practical experience in their chosen field or industry of interest.


To be eligible, you must be:

  • a secondary school student who is at least 14 years old
  • a student undertaking a qualification with a registered training organisation (such as TAFE)
  • a university student, if work experience is a mandatory requirement to complete your course.

Work experience placements are unpaid. You’ll need to be registered with a recognised school or tertiary institution that provides personal insurance and public liability coverage.
