BALLINA HIGH SCHOOL – EDGE WORKSHOP
Bennett Constructions were invited to a trial run on the Educational Pathways Pilot Program. This pilot aims to equip young people with the knowledge and skills required to present themselves in a professional capacity and ready to continue into further education or transition into the workfoce.
As part of the program NSW Dept of Education delivered an EDGE Workshop (Education, Department, Grooming & Employable Skills) to 40 selected students at Ballina Coast High School on Monday 16th March.
This workshop was created to address the gap between what students believe and what employers know, the feedback was very positive with the department thanking Bennett for their time invested in this very worthwhile program. Bennett have been part of these pathway programs for the last 12-18 months in the Northern Rivers region and will continue to support local government agencies and communities to assist in providing students/school leaves with the necessary skills and opportunities.
