The Esperance and Albany Follow the Dream/Partnerships for Success programs run a joint Career Camp to Perth every year where the students visit and liaise with a range of universities and Industry partners. The students are also building relationships with each other, which mean when the students graduate to attend university, there are more people they will know at the commencement of their higher tertiary education degrees.
