Beacon Careers Videos 

Together with the Campoaspe Cohuna LLEN, we are proud to announce the launch of a series of careers videos showcasing local people.

Here is the official launch video.

Each year Beacon holds a Careers Expo for secondary students in Echuca Moama, but this year that could not be done. Instead the Beacon Board decided to embrace technology and deliver the event on a digital platform.

CCLLEN offered assistance with the project by contributing funding and staff, in exchange for being permitted to share the careers videos with all the secondary schools in our territory.

Beacon readily agreed to this proposal and we now have a library of 57 videos (and likely to grow).

Radiant Media Productions were contracted to film local businesses, capturing 56 different occupations in short video clips, plus a video with general advice on ‘Choosing a Career’.

Most of the businesses filmed are located in Echuca and Moama, with a few from Kyabram, Rochester, Elmore and Cohuna. In the videos, the business people provide information about their job, explain a typical day and how they got into the industry.   They also describe some of the skills required for their role and which school subjects were important for their career. The videos show the workplace, and staff carrying out tasks, giving a genuine and meaningful outlook of different occupations.

The businesses and employees were incredibly generous with their time and expertise and have provided quality information and advice for students. There are long term benefits for everyone. As  we come out of restrictions and return to a new kind of normal, various opportunities will arise, so it is imperative that our youth be equipped to take full advantage of them as they take place, thus building our future workforce and strengthening our community. A successful transition from education to employment sets a young person up for life and they are our best resource for our future workforce.

The videos will be hosted on the school’s portals and students can access them during their career’s classes. An interactive workbook has been created to assist students to gain the most from the videos.

We thank Echuca Moama Beacon Foundation for the opportunity to partner with them on this exciting project.
