David Pearce from Remba Imaging had some fantastic things to say about the program and Kangan Institute's involvement:
"The WIL team at Kangan Institute have just been fantastic and have provided great support throughout the process by maintaining frequent contact and making onsite visits at Remba. They have also taken the time to understand our business and the opportunities we have on offer.
The WIL team understand the students and recommend candidates who are likely to be a good fit for our business and those we can offer a valuable learning opportunity.
With the WIL program, students benefit from the experience of operating in a 'real-world' workplace and apply their learning in a practical context. We had the pleasure of having a number of Kangan Institute students work in the business in the areas of PGA, Multimedia Development and Computer Systems Engineering.
We found that Kangan Institute's students are workplace-ready and work well with our existing team. They are eager and willing to take on challenges and are very capable of delivering meaningful projects in the business with minimal supervision. They often bring diverse and up-to-date skill sets to the business and this fosters innovation in our products and processes.
We would highly recommend the program to other businesses. It's a good opportunity to engage positive, young people with fresh ideas and lots of energy. They can make a tangible contribution to a business, taking on and delivering practical projects.
As an employer, the program also provides the opportunity to identify and select students for ongoing employment opportunities."
