Youth tell TLISC what inspires them

In the past month TLISC took part in a number of careers-focused event including a local council jobs expo and three school-based careers days.

TLISC proudly supports these events – it gives us a forum to promote the industry and speak to a diverse range of people. They offer a great opportunity to reflect on not only the perception of our industry but the things young people find inspiring.

We hear a lot about the challenges for young people and it is important to support the efforts of those assisting them to navigate the further education landscape. It’s also rewarding to hear the positive stories about what is achieved, sometimes in very challenging circumstances.

Many schools invest significant time and effort in career days to help raise students’ awareness of the range of career opportunities that exist, and focusing students on ideas for their future. Local councils also host jobs and career events to promote opportunities in their regional areas.

With youth unemployment and underemployment an increasingly significant concern, continuing to inspire young people about their future career is particularly challenging. A key message behind TLISC’s Go Places careers poster is, in transport and logistics you are never stuck for choice. There are many opportunities to keep building skills within and across sectors as you are always part of a bigger story. For instance – a short term casual job, even if its stacking toilet paper on a supermarket shelf, can be a gateway to an interest in supply chains, and there are all kinds of opportunities once that awareness is fired up.

Although many young people have an experience with the sectors of the industry, all are surprised at the range of careers and job paths as summarised on the careers poster, and are interested in the industry information and predicted trends in the TLISC Environmental Scans and infographics.
