149 students that participated under the western division Student Employment Exposure Programme (SEEP) were recruited by 32 employers during the Term One holiday.
This has been confirmed by Employment Minister Parveen Kumar at the successful closing of the SEEP programme in Lautoka last Friday.
The programme which was launched in February was aimed to spearhead the smooth transition of students from the school, into the world of work; into decent jobs and employment growth.
This was all based on student’s subject combinations, skills set, potentials and line of interests.
The minister congratulated all the students for taking up this challenge and sacrificing their school holidays for a life-changing experience.
Kumar also thanked all the host employers for taking in the students into their respective workplaces.
He says their support has enabled these students to learn employability skills which will help them make informed decisions on their career choices.
The Minister has also urged SEEP participants to share their stories and experiences as well as motivate and encourage non-participating students to participate in the next round of the programme.
