This year MOVE was honoured to be involved with GenR8, an industry-driven employment pathway initiative for Year 12 students.
The GenR8 program selects and trains Year 12 students, making them industry aware and highly employable upon graduating high school.
On completion of the program, not only will the students have earned a Certificate II in Logistics, but majority of the participants will also be offered employment placements with businesses that are members of the Queensland Trucking Association (QTA).
Through our alliance with the QTA, MOVE had the opportunity to deliver a series of financial education workshops as part of the GenR8 program at Redbank Plains State High School.
Ensuring that the future generation is financially fit:
Over the course of 10 weeks, the GenR8 students learnt practical tips for staying financially fit now and in the years to come.
Covering topics such as budgeting and setting saving goals, to learning how to obtain a Tax File Number, the program was a hit with the students.
“It was very informative and built my knowledge about banking and money”
“It gave me a better understanding of what to do with my money and how to be financially smart with my income”
“It opened my eyes about the future: from fraud, budgeting, saving, and so much more”
“I’ve learnt to be money smart and be very careful”.
“I would recommended this course to anyone and everyone”
MOVE is looking forward to delivering our financially fit workforce initiative to organisations which participated in this year’s GenR8 program over the next 12 months.
