Leighton Unlocked


​As a Beacon school, some of our Year 10 students were lucky enough to be invited along to Leighton Contractors Head Quarters in Fortitude Valley to meet some of their employees. Here’s what Miloš Julian had to say about the experience:

On Friday, 29 August, a select group of Year 10 students were taken to a business called Leighton Contractors. The students who were chosen had all expressed an interest in Engineering, Construction, a Trade or Business Administration. Being one of the students who went, I believe the excursion gave us very helpful information about career pathways. We were told about the different pathways Leighton employees took to get where they are now, as well as highlighting what employers look for when hiring people. I believe these excursions are very helpful for us because they give us a better understanding of the real world. I really appreciate the College, Beacon and Leighton Contractors for arranging this excursion and I hope we get more opportunities like this in the future.
