Victorian Local Learning and Employment Networks (VicLLENs) and DET have teamed up to deliver a series of bite-sized, Q&A style webinars, featuring employers and employees spanning across several different industries.
Students will have exposure to an insider’s perspective on what ‘a day in the life’ might look like across a variety of different workplaces. The 15-minute sessions will be live-streamed as a Zoom webinar and via Facebook, during which students will have the opportunity to ask questions in the chat.
To tune in, students can simply click on the Zoom or Facebook Link below (no registration is required).
Please note: at no time during the webinar will students be heard or be visible on screen. All questions submitted by students will be via the Zoom chat function only.
We have an exciting line up of guests ahead for Term 3. Here’s a sneak peak of who you’ll be hearing from...

“Coming to Australia only a few years ago, I didn’t know about different pathways available other than university. Luckily my Careers teacher provided me with advice about school-based traineeships. I’ve been really welcomed and helped in Australia, and I now want to give young people and families the same opportunities that I’ve been given.”
