Industry Live

Industry Live is a series of live career awareness and exploration events via Zoom. Beacon invites industry panellists to share their stories, top tips for success, and answer questions from school students across Australia in a discussion led by a trained Beacon facilitator. 

Industry Live is FREE and open to all students across Australia in Years 6-12. On average, we host one Industry Live a month and schools are welcome to opt-in to as many as they like throughout the school terms.

Program structure
Industry Live is a single 30 min- 1h online session with industry panellists from different professions joining live. Each session is based on a career topic such as careers in education, sport, science or cover life skills such as how to write a resume or how to manage your time successfully.

Industry Live exposes students to tips and stories from people with diverse career paths and connects them to industries and panellists outside of their local region. Panellists share their stories, top tips for success and answer questions from school students. Industry experts to date include the likes of NASA researchers, doctors, apprentices in various trades and CEOs.

“Beacon’s Industry Live program is a fabulous way for students to interact with the world of work across a range of occupations and to get first-hand accounts of tasks and pathways available – all without leaving the classroom.” Deb White, teacher, Finley High School (NSW).
