JTSucceed employment workshops empowering young Australians

We recently held a JTSucceed employment workshop for more than 300 years 10 students at Trinity Bay State High School in Cairns to encourage them to take ownership of their career options and what they want to do with their lives.

The program is proudly sponsored by Johnson Controls, in conjunction with JT Academy’s major employment partner Lendlease.

Designed with industry consultation, the JTSucceed workshops are a great opportunity for students to learn and gain insight into employment opportunities.

JT Academy Managing Director Johnathan Thurston said an integral element of the workshops is to empower young Australians.

“A big part of the workshops is to let them know that whether it’s getting that job, degree, or passing that exam if you have self-belief, courage, and confidence, you are the difference to achieving your dreams,” JT Academy Managing Director Johnathan Thurston said.

“We truly believe that the more empowered young people feel to pursue their own choices for their lives, the better.

“We want young Australians to believe in themselves and have the confidence and courage to make good choices, like turning up to school every day.  This makes the world of difference when it comes to pursuing the job of their dreams and feeling like they have a choice when it comes to their career path.”

Clint Clark, Branch Manager at Johnson Controls said the company saw its work with JT Academy as an important opportunity to assist young Australians into meaningful employment.

“We are incredibly proud to partner with this program and support the goal of help building confidence, courage, and self-belief in young adults to help them understand their value and aspirations with future employment opportunities,” Mr. Clark said.

“The feedback from the students at Trinity Bay was amazing and I’m looking forward to delivering this further in other schools.”

The JTSucceed program workshop will be offered free to schools and will be open to students in Years 9-12.

Workshop topics include self-belief, courage and confidence, goals, dreams, ambition, behavior, and attitude, how to find a job (where to start, personal branding, getting a job, interview preparation, and practice), industry options in addition to inspiration pieces.

Schools are invited to contact the team at m.parr@jtacademy.com.au or 07 3102 3309 to register for the free program.
