exploring opportunities

The Futures Forum explored the opportunities which $6.5b investment would bring to the region over the next decade. The event also focused on linking that investment with future jobs and the aspirations of young people on the Redlands Coast.

Futures Forum highlighted that if you’re a small business operator, government representative, training provider, student, teacher, or resident on the Redlands Coast, we all have a part to play in securing a bright future for the Redlands Coast.

Work experience offers benefits for both students and employers, providing opportunities to nurture future talent, increase productivity, and promote diversity in the workforce.

Whether you’re a student seeking to enhance your career prospects or an employer looking to invest in your workforce, work experience is a valuable opportunity worth considering.
