begin 2realise Awards

Many thanks to Anna Ainsworth, Community Development Manager at Eden Gardens, Macquarie Park for kindly hosting our begin 2realise Awards on Wednesday 14th October.

The begin 2realise Awards are to congratulate students who, as part of their VET course at school or TAFE, have represented themselves, their school and the framework in a professional manner throughout their work placement.

Invitation

Work placement complements a student’s theory competence and knowledge completed within the school or TAFE learning environment. It enables students to apply skills taught in the classroom, develop an understanding of various workplace contexts and broaden their industry skills. This program provides the opportunity for students to build self-confidence, improve work readiness and research shows that work placement has a positive effect on school completion, further study and career planning.

Eden Gardens is one of many businesses who participate in the program and you can see their genuine commitment in supporting charitable and educational organisations to provide young people with opportunities. Host employers are a vital element in ensuring that students can receive the industry exposure they need to meet their course requirements.

We ask our host employers to rate the students they host, on attitude, professional etiquette, proactive can-do approach, team interaction with other staff, presentation, manners and communication. This information is collected and 2 of our staff and Gordon Conn from our Board, evaluate the nominations and decide on those who have met the criteria to receive an award.
