Nimble News 6th June 2022
Attention Industry Associations and interested stakeholders:
There are new opportunities for industry associations and/or businesses to provide ‘career experiences’ through a recently announced WA Year 9 Career Taster Program. They have developed a “Career Taster Portal”, where schools can search for experiences. These could include excursions, hands-on activities.
We are hosting two forums to:
Gather interest from your industries in engaging with schools.
Explore what experiences could be offered by your industry association and/or members
Gather information on existing resources that you already have (e.g. websites, online videos)
Webinar: Wednesday 22nd June @ 4pm RSVP here
Face to Face: Thursday 30th June @ 4pm RSVP here
If you would like to discuss this further, please contact us on 9361 2800.
