Who provides workshops like these?

The Inner Western Sydney Business Education Partnership is a local community partnership which assists in addressing the skills shortage in Australia by getting school students interested in careers. This local community partnership (LCP) has 26 schools which it works with. They talk to TAFE about their courses on offer and then organise something interesting for young people, giving an option to schools to participate.The Jewellery design workshop gives school students a taste of the TAFE course in the hope they get excited about further study as the workshop is hands-on and fun.
