Providing young people with skills and knowledge to succeed

What is the World of Work?

MMVLLEN’s World of Work (WOW) presentations and workshops share ideas and information with young people that will support them in their decisions about pathways to a career and to navigate the changing world of work.

WOW Workshops

MMVLLEN’s World of Work workshops incorporate career pathway planning sessions using the latest tools and technology. These tools work as prompts for young people about possible career options for them, and what’s involved.

Students learn a variety of skills, including resume writing and interview skills, as well as getting to understand your rights and responsibilities in the workplace. This experience and knowledge is invaluable, especially when you wish to stand out in the crowd and get noticed by employers.

WOW Specialised Programs

Supported Pathways Program

MMVLLEN identified the need for a specialised WOW program targeting young people with a disability, learning difficulty, mental health or sensory sensativity from a mainstream school setting. Students undertake a five week program, one day a week that culminates in a day of work experience.

Newly arrived Program

MMVLLEN identified the need for a specialised WOW program targeting newly arrived students to understand the pathways through the Australian education system and prepare students for the world of work. This six week program one day a week culminates in a week of work experience.

Special School Workshops

MMVLLEN piloted new workshops to build the capacity of students and parents of students with a disability in a special school setting.

Resources

MMVLLEN has a range of resources and current information on career and alternative education.

A young person’s family or other supporters can play a huge role in helping young people towards their goals. MMVLLEN can provide information to educate themselves and help them facilitate those conversations with young people.

Focus

MMVLLEN prioritises students or groups of students that are disengaging from school or those seeking a vocational pathway.
