TLISC is Going places with the next generation

Next Generation

Over the past month TLISC has had many opportunities to spread the word about the exciting array of occupations available in the transport and logistics industry.

Bass Valley Primary School

On 9 September TLISC were involved in the Bass Valley Primary School “Get Inspired – Thinking a Step Ahead” event, raising awareness about the future possibilities in the ‘world of work’ for the students in Grades 3 -6. Events such as this are designed to foster greater participation in further education, training and post school employment through strengthened careers and transition planning.

The students were given ‘Passports’, where they were encouraged to visit all the displays, get involved in activities and answer some questions about each organisation. Correct answers were rewarded with stamps in their passports and some goodies to take away.

At the TLISC display students were encouraged to participate in a number of interactive activities such as stacking boxes on a pallet, building a train line and playing a ‘spot the hazard’ game. There was plenty of interest in the TLISC industry display, keeping us busy and identifying budding warehouse managers/aviators/rail personnel and maritime enthusiasts, who were only too willing to give our activities a go.

TLISC is always happy to be involved in events such as this, as it allows us to promote one of the largest growing industries in Australia that is an attractive and rewarding place to work and supports our commitment to developing a better skilled Transport and Logistics workforce.

Other careers events where TLISC has been represented over the last month include:

  • Green Light Day – on 22 August secondary students from across metropolitan Sydney and Newcastle were hosted at four venues in ‘meet and greet’ and mentoring sessions with industry leaders. Through these interactive and informative sessions, students from 12 High Schools learnt about the diversity and opportunities that a career in the T&L industry can provide.

The majority of students indicated they were surprised at the range of opportunities available and are now inclined to consider a career in a T&L sector. Below are photos from the Green Light Day event at Fighterworld Museum/RAAF Base in Williamtown. Students from Newcastle , Irrawang & Hunter River High Schools.
