Grandshake provide access to industry partners...

And also the quality assurance processes of Grandshake mean that we have confidence that our students are safe in the environments that they work in and we'll have great experiences.”

“Grandshake's virtual work experience platform has been very beneficial for our students; they enable industry education and workplace experiences across a very wide range career pathways. It is essential for students to broaden their experiences but also to help inform their subject choices as they look at what they will narrow their pathways down and subject choices in year 10, 11 and 12.”
