On Wednesday 1 August and Thursday 2 August 2012, AIEF held a Work Readiness Program in Brisbane, hosted by AIEF’s corporate partner Leighton Contractors.
The program prepares Year 12 students in the AIEF Scholarship Program to enter the workforce or tertiary studies after completing school. It is part of the AIEF Pathways Program, which offers a wide range of work-readiness activities and support to help students transition from school into further study and careers. The aim of the program is to inform them about career options and provide one-on-one support to develop and achieve their career goals.
The two-day workshop was a big success and received great feedback from both students who attended and corporate partners who presented modules throughout the two days.
The modules that were presented included topics such as Interview Techniques, What Employers Want, Public Speaking Techniques and Financial Literacy.
