Students from four Sydney schools have taken part in a Sydney Metro mentoring evening to learn about career pathways.


Year 11 students from North Sydney Girls High School, Alexandria Park Community School, Sydney Boys High School, Sydney Girls High and Northern Beaches Secondary College recently attended a pilot speed career mentoring evening.

Sydney Metro collaborated with Junior Achievement Australia to pilot the mentoring evening.

City & Southwest Project Director Tim Parker shared his career journey with the 12 students who attended.

“Sydney Metro means a new type of railway for Australia’s biggest city and this was an opportunity for students to learn about the careers behind a major infrastructure project first hand,” Mr Parker said.

Students said the program increased their awareness about career planning and skills, and said they would recommend the evening to a friend.

Innovation is a core value of Sydney Metro and the mentoring program aimed to provide Sydney’s youth with knowledge about building skills to solve real-life challenges and build career paths in the future.
