The Hedland Senior High School Success Program, funded through the BHP Pilbara Education Partnership, provides skills and training for students who benefit from additional wraparound support, rather than mainstream schooling.
Since commencement of the Success Program in 2021, collaboration with employers to create increased pathways opportunities for students has been strengthened through the program coordinating work placement and school based traineeship opportunities. The program is currently celebrating students attending work placements and school based traineeships across 4 local businesses, and is engaging with an additional 14 local businesses around pathways opportunities.
Success Program students have access to pathways planning and support to allow them to work towards their chosen pathway earlier in their schooling journey. These pathways plans, complemented by real life work exposure opportunities, are contributing to an increase in student attendance and engagement.
At the end of 2022, all Year 12 Working for Success students commenced employment upon the completion of school.
