Inspiring the Future for School Students

Schools Industry Partnership, Adrian Rhodes

It can start as a conversation and can lead to the beginning or next step in your career!

Students at Hawkesbury High School took part in an ITF workshop, which started with challenges that explored different employability skills and how they are applied in the workplace and concluded with informal industry conversations with workplace volunteers. The students were enthusiastic in their interaction with the volunteers and were inspired by hearing about their careers and how they got there.

Volunteer comments:

“Thank you so much for having me along, I had an absolute blast. There were some brilliant questions from the students, that even made me think! It really is amazing to see so many students ready to take on the world!”

“It was so amazing to see our future workforce in person, after trying our best to inspire them over Zoom for 2 years! There’s nothing like gathering together around a table is there? Thanks for having me again. Love my old school!”
