Transition support training

Transition support training is professional learning developed in response to demand.

Transition support training, delivered over 2 days, is for any member of a school’s staff who works with identified groups of students to ensure smooth transitions through and out of school into work, further education or training.

Many teacher have requested related professional learning.

Transition Support training delivered to connected communities Dubbo

Robert Lawson: Welcome to Transition Adviser Training which was specially designed for the connected community groups. On behalf of my colleague Dave Turner, and myself, Robert Lawson from Senior Pathways, welcome.

Over the next three days we will talk about why students disengage and possible strategies to help them reengage, the meaning and purpose of transition support, we will look at inspiring the future, industry engagement and work experience, and talk about vocational learning, which will emphasise on work exposure and work exploration.

We are lucky enough to get guest speakers coming in to support us on this conference. We have got Apprenticeship Support Australia, the Young Change Agents, NRL Education Training and Employment, we have got practicing transition advisers John Berry from Warilla Barrack and Malcolm Banks from Goodooga who are going to talk to you about the programs that they are running in their school.

Melissa Ozoux: Hi my name is Melissa Ozoux, I am the careers adviser at Walgett Community College High School, and I’ve really enjoyed doing the transition training over the last couple of days. A highlight for me has been networking with other careers advisers, transition advisors, senior community leaders about what they are doing in their schools. We’ve got some really great students who are doing some wonderful things and we need to build on that, and I think this training gives us that opportunity.

Ashley Jamison: My name is Ashley Jamison and I’m the learning centre coordinator at Menindee Central School. Throughout this training I’ve had opportunities to network with other people that work at rural schools, hear about what they are doing in their schools, as well as we’ve gotten a wide range of resources we can take back that are really going to help to engage our students and their learning and get them thinking about their career trajectories and where they’d like to go to next.

Robert Lawson: So that brings our transition advisor training for Connected Communities to a close. Thank you everyone for participating and always remember if you’ve got any further questions, please contact us.
