A group of Year 11 VET Business & Financial Services students attended a fantastic business program conducted by AUSSIP from 4th April - 10th April 2019, as part of their workplacement. AUSSIP are the registered training organisation that co-ordinates our students work placement. The program, running for the first time, integrated various activities that exposed students to real businesses in the local Parramatta community. The students were engaged in learning about SWOT analysis, job interview techniques, grooming/presentation, communication skills, employment contracts, teamwork building, career pathways and real life problem solving of current business issues. The students were privileged to lead structured conversations with local business managers in the local area, to understand career pathways and business opportunities.
