Growth Industry Preparation Programs (GrIPPs)

Tasmania’s high youth unemployment rate doesn’t stack up against the opportunities emerging in our community.

Beacon Foundation’s Growth Industry Preparation Programs (GrIPP) promote Tasmania’s key industries to young Tasmanian’s. Held on site, these intensive one-day programs help raise student and parent awareness of skills shortages and career opportunities within Tasmania.

What does a one-day GrIPP look like?

Site tour

Site tours are the starting point for a GrIPP. Held on site they showcase the workforce and future career opportunities to students, increasing their understanding of growth industries.

Work Readiness Education

Following the site tour, students participate in workshops that build aspirations, confidence and an understanding of workplace expectations and behaviour. Industry mentors support this element of the program, enriching student connection with each workplace, workforce and growth area.

Parent/Guardian Involvement

GrIPP aims to raise parent/guardian awareness of education and training opportunities within key industries. An opportunity to invite parent/guardian participation in the programs is matched with each industry partner.
