With youth unemployment set to soar in 2016, 1 in 5 university students dropping out in the first year, and VET completion rates for young people that aren’t ideal, it is everyone’s business to help raise aspirations.
19 year old award winning Australian Ambassador and entrepreneur, Jessica Perry will share successful strategies to engage young people in employment, entrepreneurship and workforce development.
During this three hour workshop you will learn strategies using a systematic easy to grasp approach to gaining young learners in Vocational Education and Training (VET). You will also learn tips and tricks in how to continue that engagement and support, helping to increase completion rates and the opportunity for further VET studies.
Communication with learners in a way that suits them is vital. Social media channels and networks plus apps and mobile technologies are what these young people are used to. Application in a training context will ensure skills development is interactive, engaging the student and increasing their desire to learn.
Learn how governments, industry, employers, youth organisations, schools, students, parents, training providers and the startup community, are embracing innovative programs for young people. Here about models of Australian Apprenticeships, including School Based, that make small and medium enterprises far more productive.
By the end of this workshop, participants will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Attract and recruit young learners
- Provide effective learner support
- Design training and skills development in a way that is engaging and interactive
- Communicating using social media networks
- Understand needs of young learners who may be school students, Australian Apprentices (including School Based), higher education students, looking for an after school job or their first job
