BCG is proud to be part of the Department of Education and Training’s Structured Workplace Learning program being so actively promoted by Birchip P-12 School.
BCG CEO Fiona Best believes the program provides students with the opportunity to integrate on-the-job experience with secondary study. “Structured Workplace Learning provides enhanced skill development, practical application of industry knowledge, assessments of units of competency, enhanced employment opportunities as well as achieving some of the learning outcomes for VCE or VCAL studies.
“By BCG participating in the program it is also an opportunity for us to promote the positive experiences working in the agriculture industry can offer and the benefits the organisation provides farmers and rural communities,” Ms Best finished.
“Through Structured Workplace Learning students obtain exposure to workplaces, enhance employability skills and are made aware of a wide array of career choices. Students obtain confidence in themselves and realise the importance of studying hard at school to increase post-school options,” Mr Christie said.
“Birchip P-12 School thanks BCG and all our employers for providing opportunity to our students.”
