Johnson & Johnson has run this global initiative since 1992. BTE aims to inspire young people to stay in school, excel academically, and elevate their career aspirations. It is currently running in 17 countries.
Officially launched on 17 February 2014, the BTE program in Australia was made possible by 2realise, as we have the expertise in brokering partnerships with corporates and education institutes (high school and tertiary). 2realise brought together three local educational institutions: Macquarie University, Northern Sydney Institute of TAFE and Marsden High School, to work with Janssen, whose parent company is Johnson & Johnson. The 3 year program will provide 47 Marsden High students with activities that enrich their academic studies and engage them into thinking about their future career options.
Forty seven students have been selected from Marsden High School to participate in the program. Through academic enrichment activities, career readiness and exploration opportunities, and higher education preparation, these students will be exposed to various careers and opportunities in the health industry and motivated to pursue higher levels of academic progress and take the steps necessary to build a better future and achieve their full potential.
