This semester our senior VCAL class is embarking on two major projects: In Personal Development Skills the class is working with industry mentors to create social enterprise concepts. Students will work in teams to generate feasibility studies, service models or product prototypes, marketing campaigns, financial analysis and market research. The unit will culminate with a pitch to mentors, school leadership and representatives from the Inner Northern Learning & Employment Network (INLLEN).
In Work Related Skills the class met today with a small production company who are providing mentoring and technical support with developing a short film. Aligned with the World Health Organisation’s Decade of Healthy Ageing, the film will focus on the positives of ageing in an effort to address negative stereotypes about growing older. Students are responsible for client liaison, concept development, storyboarding, filming and editing. The project is in collaboration with a number of external organisations including Healthily, Abound Communities (Rushall Park), and Meaningful Ageing Australia. A very full semester ahead for our Year 12 Senior VCAL cohort. Click THIS link to learn more about the United Nations Decade of Healthy Ageing initiative.
