School Employer Engagement

NMLLEN networks with schools and businesses to provide young people the access to meaningful engagements with the employment market to give them the confidence and capacity to make informed choices about their career aspirations.  

By engaging in a practical work placement arrangement, students can apply classroom learning from a Vocational Education and Training (VET) subject to a real world setting. NMLLEN brokers key partnerships between schools, employers and other stakeholders to support student’s learning and create an awareness about local industry needs and employability skills.
