I had the pleasure recently of attending the Graduation Ceremony for the Kwinana Industries Council Education Partnership-sponsored iMEN Project. Three Year 10 students represented the College in the iMEN Project: Kye Hardingham, Luke Revill and Daniel Francis.
The group of 32 students visited a number of industries, including Cockburn Cement, Tronox, Fremantle Ports and Civmec (where they also did firefighting training and subsequently received a nationally endorsed Unit of Competency). In addition to the visit program, the students learned about career pathways, personal image and presentation skills, social media, developing a resume, a range of job-seeking skills, and public speaking.
The iMEN Project ran over six days – 2, 3, 10, 11, 15 & 16 May – and, together with the iWOMEN Project, is considered an exceptional opportunity for our students to develop their personal capacity. The two courses will run again in Term Two, 2018 and will be open to Year 10 students only.
