Our Year 10 student Caitlyn Martin, recently participated in the Kwinana Industries Council iWOMEN Project, a program for Year 10 students who intend to follow a VET pathway in Years 11 and 12.
The seven day program held in Term 2 took 32 students from the schools in the KIC Education Partnership. It included site tours of industries in the Kwinana Industrial Area and the opportunity to meet employees in a range of roles. It also includes workshops: preparing a portfolio with cover letter and professional resume; interview skills and techniques; mock interviews with industry representatives; social media, health and wellbeing and more.
Students who complete the program graduate on the final day at a ceremony attended by their parents and school representatives. The program is endorsed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) and students have the opportunity to gain accreditation which is a C grade towards their WACE.
