Camden Newsagency/Sinclairs Pharmacy offer valuable week long work placements to Year 11 and 12 students who are studying Retail as part of their Higher School Certificate. They have been offering these placements since 2011.
Sharon Ditton, Office Manager, says “Becoming involved with MWLP has been a great asset to our business. Supporting HSC students is a way of giving back to the community. It also gives us, as employers, an opportunity to gain prospective employees. The students are partly trained in Retail before they come to us, so it gives us a head start and enables us to mould them to suit our Retail requirements. We have employed quite a few since joining the program.” (more…)
MWLP provides a brokerage service that allows some 6,800 HSC students to participate in two weeks of learning in the workplace during Years 11 & 12.
MWLP is a specialist in the provision of career and transition support services, targeting young people and related stakeholders and influencers (including parents, business and industry, educators and training providers and the wider community).
MWLP has over 20 years’ experience in engaging with business and industry across a broad range of industry areas and has extensive employer networks.
“You can make a difference in someone’s life just by mentoring them for one week. It will help you and the student, grow and mature as an individual. We have had some excellent students resulting in us hiring four waitresses, one kitchen hand and multiple apprentices – all from the MWLP program.”

“It’s a good opportunity to see the calibre of Macarthur’s youth. We get to screen those with potential that will ultimately benefit the company. The students are encouraged to ask lots of questions to assess whether this industry is right for them. It’s a win-win situation.”
