A COMMUNITY COLLABORATION FOR COMMUNITY BENEFITS

To host a stimulating and enjoyable The Rural Experience for year 10-12 students, your host community needs to be large enough to offer a range of learning experiences related to different careers, plus have enthusiastic people to share their experience with students.

You’ll also need suitable accommodation for a group of 16 or so students and some leisure opportunities to give students a taste of rural life.

You will need to nominate an organiser as a single point of contact, whether an individual or a representative of a community organisation or the local council.

A typical program involves:
– Welcome and introduction from community representatives and our Program Coordinator on the ground
Career Spotlight session where a range of different workers and professionals from the community share insights into their role and a typical day in their working lives
Career Focus sessions over several days where students observe work in more detail in their choice of area. You would typically offer 4-6 choices from areas such as:

  • Agriculture and agribusiness
  • Tourism and hospitality
  • Healthcare services
  • Professional and administrative services
  • Rural manufacturing
  • Natural resource management

– Sightseeing and social activities.
