Yesterday marked the launch of ‘Armadale Aspire’ – the first youth career development program of its kind local to the City of Armadale.
A group of 21 Year 10 students from six local high schools attended Day One of the six-week program today.
Armadale Aspire is modelled off the award-winning KIC iProjects and is aimed at increasing job-readiness, broadening young local’s horizons and introducing the students to the variety of diverse career opportunities within their own region. The students will participate in a series of career-development workshops such as resume writing and interview techniques, coupled with industry excursions and the opportunity to meet potential employers and discover the variety of roles and industries locally.
Good luck to all students involved and a big shout out to the Armadale Aspire partners: Kwinana Industries Council, Beaver Tree Services, Alita Constructions, Daly & Shaw Builders and the Armadale Kelmscott Memorial Hospital.
Southern Hills students Hannah, Makiah, Piper and Ngataaria experienced life in a cherry-picker at local business Beaver Trees on the first day of their Armadale Aspire Program.
