Students from Helensvale High School participated in the program at Classic Holidays in April, which combines work experience, mentoring, and personal and career insights.
“The ‘Work Inspiration’
“Everyone has embraced this program, and we are seeing it really take off in its second year with more schools coming on board.”
Thirteen students from Helensvale High took part in the two-day Head Office program at Classic Holidays in April, as well as four Horticulture students at Golden Shores Resort for a two-day Grounds program and two students at Surfers Royale for a two-day Reception program.
“The structure of the program is what the kids really enjoy – it’s fun and engaging for everyone, particularly our Classic Holidays staff who act as mentors to the students.
“This year, with the support of Partnership Brokers, we are also making a film of the ‘Work Inspiration’
“Later this month we will be presenting ‘Work Inspiration’
“The feedback from participating students has been 100% positive. They learn a lot about their own personalities, skills and strengths through the various talks and workshops, inspiring them to think about what kind of career they would like to have.
“For Classic Holidays, it’s every bit as rewarding to share behind the scenes of our business and see the students form bonds with our Classic Holidays mentors.”
