LOCAL teenagers with special educational needs will soon get a leg-up into the jobs market.

The Year 10 students will take part in a five-day program, sponsored by the Palm Beach Rotary Club and run by the Kwinana Industries Council, displaying career opportunities in industry.

Through workshops and other activities, including a day’s work experience, they will get an insight into industry and what is expected of employees.

Rotarians are spending $5000 this year and another $5000 next year to help sponsor the Kwinana Industries Council’s iDIVERSITY program. The program was selected because the participants needed more help than others.
