Chorus is a company focused on ensuring that its future workforce has the right skills. It has teamed up with secondary schools to introduce students to the world of telecommunications and technology through its Schools Gateway Programme.
“For Chorus, the benefits are an increased awareness of the great careers available in our industry. We also end up with a pool of skilled candidates for technical roles, including apprenticeships,” says Michael Hansen, Manager, Service Company Implementation at Chorus.
“The young people who are successful in this programme will develop useful skills that are relevant for a career in telecommunications,” says Michael. “We believe that as a big industry player we have a role to play in helping young people get those skills.”
