Future careers come into focus
What career and job opportunities are likely to be available on the Sunshine Coast in the year 2025?
Council will provide a preview to local secondary school students in Years 9-12 through the Future Careers+ program, starting next week at the University of Sunshine Coast Innovation Centre.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said the program will include a series of one-day exhibitions throughout this year that focus on future study and employment opportunities within the region’s seven high value industries.
“The key objective of the Future Careers+ program is to make our young people aware of the career opportunities that are likely to be available to them in the year 2025 within the high value industries in the Regional Economic Development Strategy (REDS) and to provide information on education pathways to help youngsters achieve relevant qualifications here on the Sunshine Coast ,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“These seven high value industries have been identified under REDS as the keys to future employment and economic strength on the Sunshine Coast. They complement the Sunshine Coast lifestyle and our natural advantages and will provide a platform for future quality employment opportunities for young people in our region.”
