The following is a message from Parade College Director Pathways Education and Old Paradians’ Association committeeman, John Nicholls;
Each year The Year 11 VCAL students undertake a project ‘Our Local
World of Work’. Students arrange to visit a workplace and meet with and
business owner or manager. Questions revolve around vocational
pathways, business structure, clients, customers and competitors, as
well as OHS, recruitment
and wages and conditions.
The project provides an excellent opportunity for our students to
develop their skills and experiences. It relies on the support of
businesses to participate
in the project.
I am pleased to see a number of Old Paradians supporting the project as they have done for a number of years.
This year, the following gave up their time to meet our students and
then return to the College to listen to students present their findings
in a PowerPoint
