Work Experience 12A and Work Experience 12B differ from most courses in that they are primarily designed to take place outside of the school setting. At least 90 hours of course time must consist of actual work placements.

The work experience does not need to occur at just one site, but may take place at multiple sites.

The remaining course hours may be devoted to in-school learning or assessment activities for the course, or further work placements.

The in-school component of the course may be offered in a variety of formats, including scheduled classroom settings, seminars, drop-in sessions, electronic instruction, and one-on-one instruction.

Work Experience 12A and Work Experience 12B may be offered as part of a school's career programs or as stand-alone courses to help students fulfil their work experience and/or community service hours required for graduation.

Some of the learning outcomes for Work Experience 12A and 12B will also help students create evidence for the community connections component of Graduation Transitions.

All students participating in a work experience course must have an in-school orientation to prepare them for the workplace. The orientation must include instruction on work site safety awareness. It may also contain topics such as classroom-taught skills transferable to a specific work placement, worker rights and responsibilities, and employer expectations.
