VicWater has partnered with Melbourne Water and the Australian Centre of Careers Education (ACCE) to produce resources for secondary school students and teachers aimed at promoting career pathways into the Victorian water industry. The resources are now available on the ACCE website.
We know that as a sector we are facing significant challenges around skills shortages and an increasingly competitive job market. We hope that the ACCE resources will help young people and their career advisors to regard the Victorian water industry as an exciting, diverse and inclusive place to work and thrive.
Many thanks to all the water corporations who contributed case studies, staff profiles, study option information, and industry images, and a special thank you to Jill Sears, Diversity & Inclusion Manager at Melbourne Water as the initiator and driving force of this project.
