It's not easy to get work experience in a design studio.

The majority of Australian design studios are micro businesses which means they have less than three employees so it's a big ask for them to give up billable hours to take on work experience students. This means that when your son or daughter is looking for design work experience they will need to show a high level of interest in, and enthusiasm about, design.

We have built this site to help prepare them for this experience.

Parents can help by gaining an understanding of the design industry, how it works and the type of careers it includes. That way you can help broaden their horizons if the exact position they want is not available.

We've written the design work experience student workbook to help prepare students for work experience – it's a downloadable, personalised 20 page book that when used with this site will help students get the most from their work experience.
