Federal Member for Wide Bay, Llew O’Brien, has released a School Leavers’ Guide for year 12 students as they prepare for life after high school.

“The 2023 edition of the School Leavers’ Guide is a useful resource, containing a range of information designed to help year 12 students prepare for life after school, whether they are considering university, a trade, or even starting their own business,” Mr O’Brien said.

“Year 12 students have many choices and decisions to make about the future and it’s important to consider all the alternatives and the support that is available to help them reach their goals. 

“The School Leavers’ Guide provides an up-to-date overview of the options, including education and training, financial assistance, employment programs, and other information which may help school leavers as they enter this exciting new phase of life.”

The guide will be distributed to secondary schools in the Wide Bay electorate.  It is also available for downloading from Mr O’Brien’s website at www.llewobrien.com.au

Additional hard copies can be obtained by telephoning Mr O’Brien’s office on (07) 4121 2936.
