Future Connect has taken its first steps into the world of webinars!

As much as we absolutely love to present to students in our local area in person, 2020 has made that impossible, so we had to think of different ways to connect. Not just connect, but to create valuable connections between young people and industry. To help remove some of the barriers 2020 has created and provide students with insights into career pathways across different industries.

From there Industry Conversations was born!!

We ran our first Industry Conversations webinar discussing all things hairdressing. The session was created for students completing the Certificate II in Salon Assistant, as well as students who think that a career in hairdressing might be for them. We discussed everything from what an average day looks like when completing SWL to what employers are looking for when hiring an apprentice and everything in between.

The event was a huge success thanks to our amazing panellists, Prue, owner of Lady and the Hair, Megan, owner of Satori Hair and Brylee, First Year Stylist at Lady and the Hair. A huge thank you for being so generous with your time, knowledge, experience and for supporting young people in the industry! There are more great webinars in the works, up next, we will be looking at Allied Health and Community Services. Keep an eye on our socials for updates. if there is an industry you would like to know more about, let us know by emailing Lyndsay on Lyndsay.mandaru@futureconnect.org.au
