Part of this program saw Linda facilitate and lead a site-wide mentoring program and deliver specific class lessons focussing on industry applications of the current curriculum (STEM) at the Western Cape College and Aurukun School, supporting school based traineeships focussing on diversity candidates, mentoring of year 11/12 females seeking career opportunities as well as providing industry tours for teachers so they better understand the full business and the opportunities that exist.
