KIC Education Development Program DVD

The Kwinana Industries Council (KIC) Education Development Program was built on the success of its award winning KIC Metals & Engineering School Based Traineeship located at Gilmore College. The individual programs were developed in partnership with local high schools in an effort to introduce students to the careers in Kwinana's business sector and to give them practical exposure in the Kwinana Industrial Area (KIA). The programs offered through the partnership provide initiatives to help students identify opportunities for work placement in the KIA. In addition, KIC members have the potential to attract local youth to careers in local industry and to help raise their aspirations towards career pathways. This DVD has been produced to showcase the Education Development Programs that KIC has developed for local students in the KIC Education Partnership.

"We are all still on a bit of a high, following Wednesday nights presentation. WOW!! All those young ladies were amazing.

We are so very excited about the experience Taylor has gained through the program, and winning the KIC scholarship for the Leeuwin. Something she has wanted to be a part of for the last few years, unfortunately we have never been in a position to send her. So we are so very grateful, for that generous award.

I can't remember the last time I have seen Taylor so excited about something. And proud!! Thank you ".

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all your colleagues at KIC for giving Meg this opportunity. So far she has thoroughly enjoyed the experience and she still has 3 days left! Kind regards".

"I would like to thank you for this wonderful opportunity for Skyla. Skyla has really enjoyed her time at iWOMEN so far and has found it very beneficial being exposed to traditionally male dominated or careers and careers that she has had no exposure to before.

She also really enjoyed and benefitted a lot from the presentation by Lisa Fernandez. This project is a great opportunity for Skyla who has a real interest in the Science field but is really unsure of where her career path lies.

Thank you Kwinana Industries Council for providing such an amazing experience for our daughter and other girls in the community".
