Come to Work With Me is a weekly webinar series that introduces students to the world of work through bite-sized conversations with employees across a range of different industries.
This week, we’ll be hosting a National Skills Week special episode featuring entrepreneurial career pathways for young people. The episode will explore an initiative designed to empower secondary students to develop enterprise skills through applying design thinking to address community and social issues.
We’ll be discussing some of the exciting student initiatives underway such as:
-Repurposing old jeans into housing insulation
-Developing an app where students can check in on each other’s mental health during lockdowns
Find out more about how these students are building entrepreneurial skills in a VCAL setting and what kind of career pathways are available to students with an interest in entrepreneurship.
