GPC Electronics provides work experience

Sydney – November 2014

GPC Electronics is proud to support the University of Technology Sydney, the University of Western Sydney, Mt Druitt TAFE, the Schools Industry Partnering Unit and Northcott (among others) in providing meaningful work experience for young people across Western Sydney who are looking to complement their studies with some practical on-the-job experience.  GPC has been associated with these institutes for many years now, offering a host of work experience opportunities such as a 3 - 6 month internship, full block weeks, just a couple of hours per day, or a couple of hours per week, depending on the needs of the students. 

Work placement is a fantastic way for students to enhance their classroom learnt skills. Most of the students who seek work placements at GPC are studying electronics or a related field, so they are keen to put theory in to practice. All are pleased to be gaining valuable experience in the real world. We also find that having the students on site on a regular basis helps to strengthen employee skills in job instruction, mentoring, communication, team building, supervision and patience.   

GPC also hosts a number of study groups each year, with three of the groups, Fairfield High School, Toormina High School from the mid-north coast of NSW and the Republic Polytechnic in Singapore, being regular visitors.
