This section covers factors to consider when setting up work experiences and includes recommendations around supports for students on site. It also includes a discussion of practices and procedures related to work experience site visits (questions, checklists, rubrics, etc.). Information related to safety and risk management are covered in-depth in a later section. As with the rest of this handbook, the recommendations in this section are specifically related to Employment Readiness work experiences as opposed to Sector-Specific (as defined in the ASE Program Specific Transfer Guide Project). These specialized WEPs have variances in requirements for training site designation as well as visit protocols, etc., which are typically more in-depth and include a focus on skills specific to a particular vocation. In settings where there is union involvement, there is often additional paperwork or the following checklists outline considerations and recommendations for ER WEPs.
