The Michael Long Learning & Leadership Centre (MLLLC) will add another string to its bow by starting an Employment Pathways Leadership pilot program next week.
Between August 20 – 24 the new leadership program will launch and be focused on the Employment Pathways Curriculum for students aged 14-17.
The program will include education sessions to help support students to get ready for employment and include work experience opportunities at AFLNT, NORFORCE and Aboriginal Broadcasting Australia.
It will also host awareness of employment pathways through Charles Darwin University and job awareness opportunities at the Darwin Skills, Employment and Careers expo.
The program has been funded by McArthur River Mine, who are also the platinum sponsor of the Job Expo, The Employment Pathways Unit within the Department of Education and Borroloola School.
MLLLC Programs Manager Rychelle Vines is excited for the program to begin.
“The MLLLC Employment Pathways Leadership Program will enable students to identify employment pathways, in line with their skills and interests to develop sustainable employment outcomes.
The program extends on the knowledge learnt in the school curriculum and will continue the success of our junior Education program, harnessing the power of football to engage students.” she said.
The Darwin Skills, Employment and Careers Expo runs from 8.30am – 3pm August 24th, at the Darwin Convention Centre.
