Valuable experience gained

By Benalla Ensign

The recent Hands On expo held at Winton Motor Raceway, which allows young people to get first-hand experience of a variety of trades, was a big success.

Part of the reason for that success is the array of local groups involved in the expo, one of which is FCJ College, whose students were part of the organising committee.

FCJ students were involved in organising the employers’ lunch and general events management tasks as part of the VCAL program.

The expo provided a chance for students to network with employers and to learn about how this community initiative is created.

This is the second year FCJ VCAL students have been involved working with the expo team.

The experience is only getting bigger and better and staff look forward to being able to offer this learning opportunity to future VCAL students in the coming years.
