Beacon Program – Creating Opportunities for Students
NUMBER 1 NO DOLE SCHOOL IN AUSTRALIA
Western Port Secondary College has won a national award for its innovative career education initiative No Dole – Bright Futures.
No Dole is a careers program targeted at students usually at year 10, but inclusive of other year levels, and aims to provide the knowledge and skills to choose positive career pathways post compulsory schooling.
The Beacon Foundation works with schools to establish community and business links to broaden the employment, training or further schooling opportunities for students through programs such as site tours, mock interviews, a work ready Polish program, mentoring and work placement.
