100% SWEET Whanganui would like to thank our sponsors for their support over the last year, this has helped us to achieve amazing results with our local youth.

 

2019 has been an exciting year for 100% SWEET Whanganui; Since the 1st of July 2019 – present we have achieved the following with your support:

59 Work Ready Graduates

42 Graduates returning to further education (71.2%) Including students returning to complete year 13 in 2020

7 Into employment (11.9%)

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.

 

2020

2020 will bring more exciting opportunities and success.

We will be kicking off the new year with planning our biennial career expo which is scheduled to take place on 13 May at the Whanganui racecourse, which will be double the size of our last expo!

All year 12 and 13 students from Whanganui and Rangitikei will be attending. If you would like to be involved please let us know.

Jason will continue to deliver the work-ready passport in schools around Whanganui and Rangitikei and Hannah will continue to increase our business engagement, with the aim to have another 50 businesses on board to endorse the Work Ready Passport.

We look forward to working with you all in the throughout 2020 Meri Kirihimete Hannah & Jason
