The Get Ahead Experience Day is a road show event that travels NZ between the months of March and June every year and stops at different locations.
- The event is run for year 12 high school students with each event catering for the 100 – 120 students who attend from the local high schools.
- We have 10 different industry organizations from across the industry attend each event with each organization running a hands on challenge that provides a learning experience, enabling the students to learn about different careers in the industry as well as engage with industry professionals from each organization.
- The students will rotate around each of the 10 challenges in teams where they have the chance to compete for points and prizes.
Not only will students have the opportunity to connect with and learn about careers across the industry but throughout the day will also hear from young people working in the industry, learn about the 3.5 million dollars worth of scholarships, and some of the graduate programs that are available. Attending a Get Ahead experience day is a great opportunity for students to start exploring and thinking about what their next steps will be once they finish high school.
