Teacher Feedback

This was a pretty amazing experience for our students, and they were so engaged and excited about planning their pathways.

All students found some benefit from the day, from confirming a desire to move into this industry to considering employment possibilities they had not considered to pathways they didn’t know existed.

Excellent opportunity for students to see the wide range of employment prospects. Very well planned and catered for all students. Very enjoyable and interesting.

They helped students discover the huge scope of career opportunities within the Forest Industry, and discussed the wide range of sectors within the industry.
