Victoria University Secondary College has a long standing partnership with the Beacon Foundation. The aim of the Beacon Foundation is to “Ensure all young people complete year 12 or equivalent and ultimately transition into meaningful careers through connecting schools and industry”.
The Beacon Foundation provides our students with opportunities to learn from and interact with people from a range of businesses. These businesses have included: Holcim, Open Universities Australia, Hawthorn Football Club, Toll Australia, Qantas, Intercontinental Hotel Group, Brimbank Melton LLEN, Hutchinson Legal, Melbourne Water and The Myer Foundation.
An important leadership role at the College is to be a Beacon Student Ambassador whose role is to help facilitate the running of the program and encourage student participation. We have had Beacon Student Ambassadors at the College since 2013. Students must apply with a written application and the shortlisted students are interviewed.
I am very pleased to announce the VUSC Beacon Student Ambassadors for 2017:
Patience Pyne, Ricky La, Lisa Nguyen, Jayne Seumalii and Neisha Collier.
Congratulations to these students!
Careers, Pathways and Partnerships Leader
