Year 10 students Travis, Joshua and Riley are currently participating in the Kwinana Industries Council iMEN Project. This is a seven day program for students who intend to follow a VET pathway in Years 11 and 12.
The program, held in Term 2, takes 32 students from schools within the KIC Education Partnership. It includes 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 successfully complete the program graduate on the final day at a Graduation 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.
