This week saw the roll out of the latest round of Career Readiness Programs in Animal Care and Equine. The programs are designed to open pathways and provide learners with a sense of possible career options.
Each program offers a one week intensive ‘hands on’ course handling animals at the state of the art facilities of the Sydney Showground. Students are trained by the industry expert teachers from Richmond TAFE and enjoy a range of guest speakers throughout the week. The program is facilitated through a simulated work environment, providing learners with a taste of employment options.
The program provides students with advice on suitable career options in their chosen area of industry and assists them to develop pathway programs suited to their skill levels.
