The North Albany Clontarf Academy held their annual Employment day. The employment day is an excellent opportunity for Clontarf students to gain insight into employment. The day consisted of visiting three Clontarf partners they were Water Corporation, Officeworks and K Mart.
The visit to Water Corporation consisted of an information session on what Water Corp do in Albany, and what employment opportunities are on offer, with two past Clontarf alumni from Water Corp presenting to the students.
The visit to Officeworks and K Mart was a guided tour of the store and detailed descriptions of all job roles and responsibilities of their staff. The students had an opportunity to apply for some casual work, and one of our Clontarf students were successful in gaining employment.
Our last visit of the day was to Worklink Albany where they received some more information on extra support to help find employment. While there, the students worked on updating resumes and applying for tax file numbers and even practised for their learners permit via the online testing.
The Clontarf employment day was successful. It included powerful messages from past alumni and support from Clontarf business partners, thank you to all who were involved.
