WAYIN™ (West Auckland Youth Into employment) was launched by the Central Park Henderson Business (CPHB) in 2018. This initiative’s key deliverables are to support our young people (16 – 24yrs) into employment opportunities and support businesses to engage and employ young people (including entry-level job opportunities).
Member schools already have a great record with their vocational pathways and the Gateway Program. However, current successes could be further enhanced by bridging the gap between the untapped potential of young people to an entry way to local companies, especially across the trades.
As the programme develops, it will allow us to survey and gather information with business leaders to provide data and context on current and trending job vacancies, and the demand of finding and keeping the best talent.
