10 Graduates unsure of their 2020 plans, we are continuing to work alongside them.
A total of 48 young people have found employment or are commencing tertiary study, through 100% SWEET Whanganui.
Because of our growing success, we have employed a Business Engagement Facilitator to develop further part-time employment, holiday employment, work experience, industry tours and career opportunities with our school leavers.
We hope that further engagement with our local employers will also help to support our work-ready interviews for graduates as well. Without your support, we could not achieve such amazing results.
