School 'work experience' programs have upped their game since our days, because this is far cooler than what we did back in 2006.
Townsville State High School students will gain firsthand experience in airport operations during a work placement at Townsville Airport this term, as part of the Queensland-wide Aerospace Gateway Schools program.
Seven year 12 students will gain experience in the areas of electrical, mechanics, commercial, marketing, aviation and safety- how cool!
The program started this week and will run for the duration of term two and aims to support the growth of an effective workforce for the aviation industry by providing the opportunity for young people to undertake structured workplace learning.
Good luck, crew!
