Get-Go Futures Day is a employment initiative by Get-Go, in partnership with Horowhenua College, Manawatū College and Waiopehu College.
The fourth annual Get-Go Futures Day was held on Thursday 23rd March 2023 providing the opportunity for over 300 Year 10 Horowhenua students and their teachers, to visit a range of different employers in the district and explore of future employment options. Futures Day provides students the ability to connect their learning at school to different workplace environments and expectations.
Career opportunities were showcased across seven businesses who participated in this year’s event; Aquatics Horowhenua, Horowhenua Council Parks and Council Civics, Woodhaven Gardens, Techlam NZ, Pāmu Farms and Quarter Acre Café.
Students had the opportunity to see different aspects of the businesses from operating GPS self-steering tractors, being agile in a commercial kitchen, to local park designing. By getting to visit employers and see some of the diversity of the roles that are out there we can inspire young people and support them to get excited about their future careers and workplace environments.
