It was with great delight that Navitas Professional hosted workshops for Open Futures’ Study Tour.

Open Futures, an education agent, organises one to two week Australian study tours for Chinese high school and university students to better enable them to understand the Australian education system and employment opportunities.

Open Futures worked with Navitas Professional Brisbane to develop a full day workshop aimed to provide what it is like to live, study and work in Australia.

The workshop involved:

  • Listening to our Professional Year graduate from China, about their journey in successfully studying and finding employment in Australia
  • Resume building
  • Where the job opportunities are and how much do they pay?
  • Australian workplace culture
  • Elevator pitch

The workshop was considered a success with feedback from students, teachers and agents described as ‘positive’, ‘buzzing’ and ‘energetic’. Students also felt fortunate to hear the experiences of recent Professional Year graduate, Grace Guo and her success story through Navitas Professional. Afternoon tea was provided and ‘Work and Live in Australia’ certificates were presented allowing for a nice wrap-up to the workshops.

We look forward to continue working with Open Futures, through our employability workshops; ensuring future international students are better prepared when planning to study and work in Australia.
