Enterprise and employability
about the program
GOALS aims to widen the life choices and aspirations of students in their middle years of high school. It is also designed to encourage the completion of high school. Students from low socio-economic schools generally have little opportunity to network outside their immediate community and are often lacking in professional role models who can demonstrate a variety of career options.
The focus of this program is to help students build their confidence, learn about the importance of setting goals and to assist them in continuing their education to Year 12 and beyond. Students are matched with a corporate mentor and they work in groups on activities that include setting goals, communication, personal brand and preparation for the workforce.
