The Tasmanian Working on Water (WoW) Program was created to introduce students from Years 9 and 10 to a wide range of career opportunities in the marine sector. WoW is a ‘hands on’ career pathway program that will introduce students to the diverse range of professions available on, in and around the marine environment. The types of careers available in Tasmania is incredibly diverse, and includes positions in the seafood industry, marine sciences and tourism.
During the program students will have tours of the workplaces, listen to speed talks and presentations by IMAS, and attend presentations and tours from other marine and training sectors. This will provide students with an authentic, ‘real world’ and out-of-classroom experiences, seeing and hearing how you can get into different jobs, and what is involved once you are working.
The program will run for schools in South Tasmania from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 October, and schools in North Tasmania from Monday 28 to Wednesday 30 October.
