Coffs Harbour 12th, 13th & 14th November
Port Macquarie 19th, 20th & 21st November

Students requiring transport in surrounding areas will be collected on the way from Macksville being the central point to each location.

I would like to showcase this wonderful opportunity as a number of employers have been approved for the Elsa Dixon Grant and will be searching for School Based Trainees ready to commence next year.

Possible placements include, Administration, Health Services, Local Government, Education Support.   Can you please distribute this throughout your networks, schools and interested students.

The “Learn to Work Deadly” pilot program is a great opportunity for Aboriginal students to find out about local careers and gain knowledge around pathways available so they can make informed decisions about their future career choice.   This program has been designed in consultation with NSW’s public and local government to meet the needs of employers in preparing students for the Elsa Dixon School Based Traineeship recruitment for 2020.

The “Learn to Work Deadly” program will be delivered in a number of locations across the Mid North Coast region from Coffs Harbour to Port Macquarie.   If you have keen and capable students that would benefit from participating in this program, this could be the opportunity they may be looking for, please see the flyer attached for more information.

Please send keen and capable student nominations tostacey.mitchellbales@det.nsw.edu.au  

If you have any questions, please give me a call on 0448 987 240
