Last month we were invited present at the School to Work Summit at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. The summit brings together experts, innovators and leaders from education, industry, government, and community. This year the focus was connecting education with future workforce opportunities; tacking challenges such as economic disruption, equity and inclusion, in-demand skills, and the role of technology. Wurun Senior Campus, together with the Northern College of Arts & Technology (NCAT), spoke about a Micro Enterprise Unit that we collaboratively designed and piloted with Senior VCAL students last year. The unit introduces students to local social enterprises, and challenges them to create their own business concepts in collaboration with industry mentors. Senior VCAL students at Wurun Senior Campus will participate in the unit again this year.
