Developing a Learning Community: Bridging the gap between institutions, communities and industry

Experiential learning has taken centre-stage across the region due to its long-term benefits for students from a range of backgrounds. Students must now develop entrepreneurial thinking and work experience from an early age in order to succeed on a global platform of learners. This panel will explore how schools can utilise relationships with the community in order to create more opportunities for work experience, build relationships with industry partners and nurture talent in young people ahead of graduation.
