Ministry of Education sponsored skills and career festival

The Wellington Chamber of Commerce are proud to support the Ministry of Education sponsored skills and career festival at Wellington College on the 18th of August!

We invite our Chamber members to meet face to face with small groups, from a total five hundred Year 11 - 13 students. These Pacific students are from 8 different colleges and have a desire to know more about your industry and its occupations.

Supporting the next generation of Pacifika leaders does not require any financial cost, only two hours of your time and for you to share your contagious energy for your industry with these young minds. Light food and refreshment will be available to thank you for your time and the students will be giving cultural performances after the festival you are invited to watch.

Further information:

This event is created to support Pacific students engage with employers, businesses and industries so they are can be inspired to think about the world of work while in compulsory education.

  • International research shows students who have four or more engagements
    with employers are 25% less likely to become unemployed once they leave
    school.
  • Through employer engagement, young people often gain access to new and
    trustworthy information and also gain useful networks. This raises
    aspirations and broadens horizons for students.
  • Employers have the ability to open up to new and potential candidates to
    join your industry now and into the future. It allows businesses to add and
    develop diverse workforce, consequently demonstrating business
    commitment in supporting New Zealanders in this uncertain time.
