Who are we?
The Business Liaison Association is a not-for-profit association that provides a unique role in linking education and industry.
We have forged strong working relationships with all the secondary schools in the region and provide secondary students with relevant, up to date knowledge, skills and resources to meet the current and evolving scope of the business and professional community.
The Business Liaison Association has access to nearly 11,000 year 10, 11 and 12 students across the far north from Tully to Mossman and through the Tablelands.
By collaborating with schools, training providers, employment agencies, government departments, professional associations and industry representatives, the Business Liaison Association facilitates a range of events including the Annual Careers & Employment Expo
Each year, we offer a number of Awards, Competitions & Bursaries designed to bring students, educators and the business community together. These are generously sponsored by a number of businesses within the Cairns community - and beyond.
We are dedicated to advancing career opportunities and pathways for our secondary students and we are uniquely placed to broker these for our young people - but not only that.
We believe amazing things happen when schools and businesses work together - and we love making it happen!
If you would like to do amazing things with us to help and inspire our students, then please TALK TO US!
