We recently facilitated an Inspiring Young People event for Wonthaggi Secondary College. These events help students to understand career navigation and career pathways. Over some team building activities and lunch, students were able to talk one-on-one with industry mentors. They learned about the different educational and career paths that people took to get to where they are today. There were also several guest speakers on the day and mentors from a range of different industries.
The unique opportunity for students to meet with such a wide range of industry mentors and engage in valuable career conversations result in many positive outcomes.
” This program gives industry a wonderful opportunity to engage with students and help them follow their passions. It is about teaching students that real-life pathways are not always so linear and that your first job won’t necessarily be your last. We never had this when I was at school and I commend this program.”
