    Youth for Climate Action

    Year 11 and 12 Entertainment work placement from the Central Coast produced video, graphic and audio content for CliMarch, an online campaign aimed at encouraging as many people as possible to undertake the five most impactful individual actions to combat climate change.

    Students contributed to a movement to influence change amongst youth, families and communities. The participation of youth across the Central Coast was made possible due to the partnership between CliMarch and Skilled Creative.

      Skill Engineer awarded Work Placement Coordination Program tender 

      A Work Placement Coordination Program contract has been awarded to a non-for-profit after a successful bid for the program. 

      The Skill Engineer Ltd will deliver coordination services for mandatory Higher School Certificate (HSC) Vocational Education and Training (VET) work placements from 2021 to 2025 across the Central Coast and Northern Sydney. 

      Executive Director of The Skill Engineer Ltd, Maggie MacFie, says she is thrilled the tender will go to The Skill Engineer Ltd. 

      “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to prepare young people for their transition into the world of work, with the skills to achieve and fulfill personal ambitions and employment goals,” said Ms MacFie. 

      “Work placements enable students to understand how classroom skills translate to a workforce setting, and provide a solid foundation for young people for future employment.” 

      The Skill Engineer Ltd will liaise with local schools with secondary enrolments, EVET providers and employers to coordinate HSC VET work placements for all eligible students within the service region. 

      Each year approximately 20,000 employers across NSW host student work placements. Ms MacFie says host employers are integral to the success of the Work Placement Program. 

      “Employers who host students may not realise the integral part they play in a young person’s journey to becoming work ready.” 

      “We look forward to working with local businesses to create purposeful, relevant and challenging work placement opportunities for young people, our future workforce.”

      Work placement industries include Automotive, Business Services, Construction, Electrotechnology, Entertainment Industry, Financial Services, Hospitality, Human Services, Information and Digital Technology, Primary Industries, Retail Services and Tourism, Travel and Events. 

      The Skill Engineer Ltd is a social enterprise creating employment, social and civic opportunities for disadvantaged and vulnerable young people.
