School industry partnerships play an important role in improving young people's transition from school to employment. Students need exposure to different jobs and workplaces so that they can build aspirations and see where their studies could lead. SGBCLLEN partners with different industries to facilitate a range of experiences including mock job interviews, career development activities, challenge based learning projects, curriculum aligned activities, industry site tours, OH&S site inductions and other educational iniatives. 

Some of our current partnerships:
