MDBC takes pleasure in promoting a Mindshop Excellence program to provide a meaningful work experience for six year 10 students for Murwillumbah High School. Local business and Chamber Member Cool-A-Bah Air-condition is hosting the program which will run from Monday September 19th to Friday 23rd 2016.
Mindshop Excellence is a structured five-day Work Experience Program for groups of 4 -6, Year 10 or Year 11 students.
David Vincent Program Facilitator explains “The program aims to immerse the students in a real problem, selected by a host company. It has the potential to avoid the ‘pretend’ element that so often lessens the impact of Work Experience. The students are seen as real partners with a valued role to play.”
The students are taught unique problem solving tools to develop skills in presentation, critical thinking, goal setting and meeting deadlines. Mindshop Facilitators and community/industry trained Facilitators donate their time and expertise to train the groups of students in basic Mindshop business improvement tools and processes including team work, strategic thinking, mind mapping, brainstorming, flow charting, cause and effect analysis, public speaking, motivation and self-esteem.
