Participating in education or employment after finishing school helps young people to lead meaningful lives and encourages an inclusive and productive society. Young people need support to realise the opportunities for them to transition to further education, training or employment after school.
Beacon delivers career readiness programs that bridge the gap for students in circumstances where our current education system is unable to provide these opportunities.
Beacon connects schools with businesses and communities to bring real world relevance to education and to inspire young people to think about their careers and experience the workplace, long before leaving school.
Beacon does this through the delivery of career programs and services that are focussed on building students’ career confidence and career readiness, with the aim of assisting students to transition into a meaningful pathway of further education, training and/or employment.
Why does Beacon need support?
