The Careers and Employability team in October 2022 partnered with the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) and Connected to hold the Spring into Work Hiring and Recruitment Day at Toi Ohomai – Windermere Campus.
Over 200 people attended the event, with high levels of energy and engagement. Interviews were held on the day with some employers hiring participants on the spot.
The Virtual Reality (VR Skills) was a hit amongst ākonga providing opportunities to explore the many industries available from Horticulture, Hospitality, Traffic Management to Building and Construction. The event brought together local businesses, Employers, Community members and Schools to connect and gain opportunities in education, training and employment.
