Victoria’s Industry Immersion Experience Program

With the all too familiar issue of skills shortages in our industry, the Career Education Association of Victoria has a student engagement program running through until the end of the school year. The underlying objective to better familiarise students with a variety of industries, with many programs already underway. For the collision repair industry this is an opportunity not to be missed

Career Education Association of Victoria (CEAV) is a not for profit charity that supports career development as a lifelong process. We believe that through the development and delivery of ethical and professional career education and training, careers counselling services and products, individuals can become successful career self-managers.

The Industry Immersion Experience Program is an opportunity for Year 7 to 10 students in eligible Victorian government schools to actively engage in a range of industry immersion experiences that build their knowledge of the world of work and future workforce skill requirements.

The CEAV in partnership with the Department of Education and Training is offering students the opportunity to spend a day on site at an industry workplace in the following growth areas:

  • Construction Technologies
  • Creative Industries
  • Defence Technologies
  • Digital Technologies
  • Food and Fibre
  • International Education
  • Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals
  • Professional Services
  • Retail, Transport, Distribution, Logistics and Postal
  • Transport Technologies
  • Visitor Economies

CEO Bernadette Gigliotti said: “The Collison Repair Industry has a unique opportunity to capture the imagination of young people while in their formative years to build the next generation of workers for this dynamic industry. Get involved and showcase the best careers your industry has to offer.”

Students will hear from industry leaders, tour the facilities and participate in career development activities that provide them with valuable and meaningful insight and understanding into the current world of work and the future needs of industry.

Teachers receive an Immersion Day Pack that includes a program workbook for students with pre and post Immersion activities, and teacher resources including lesson plans mapped to the Victorian curriculum.
