Akorn working with Schools

schools-logo

Akorn Education works closely with schools and their students.

Most of our programs work in partnership with Community, Industry and Tertiary organisations, such as engineering companies, special developmental schools, science institutes and land management organisations.

Some of our programs provide opportunities for students to engage meaningfully in the workplace and gain valuable work experience skills such as time management, leadership and public speaking. These programs provide students with real-life experiences, which enables them to clarify their own learning and career goals.
