NMLLEN facilitates and delivers a selection of information sessions in partnership with the local industry to the region’s secondary school students for enhancing their vocational pathways.
These sessions serve as invaluable platforms for students to explore and gain insights into various vocational pathways available to them. By fostering strategic partnerships with businesses and organisations in the local community, NMLLEN ensures that the information shared is not only relevant but also reflective of the evolving demands of the workforce.
The program provides insights into the local industries, workplaces, employability skills and understanding employer expectations. Through these information sessions, students have the opportunity to delve into the intricacies of different vocations, gaining a deeper understanding of the requirements and expectations of various industries. This proactive approach helps bridge the gap between academic knowledge and practical skills, preparing students for a seamless transition from the educational environment to the professional realm.
Students also explore the various vocational education and training and school to work transition options and the interaction allows them to gain more insights into their own strengths, weaknesses, values and helps them in building their self confidence.
