Teacher, Senior Leader 


In a rapidly changing world of work, it is important for teachers to keep up to date with industry. By gaining current industry knowledge, teachers can ensure that what they teach is relevant to the real world. This relevance can make classroom learning more engaging for students and help prepare them for the future.  

To give teachers the opportunity to learn more about industry, visits have been organised with various employers. These visits are open to all teachers and are not necessarily subject specific.  

Please note all the industry visits are capped. Prior to the event, ISV will contact participants with further details. 

Research highlights teachers that have a greater understanding of industry can play a vital role in helping students to succeed in life beyond school. 

Yakult Australia 

Yakult’s “purpose-built” Australian factory is a technologically advanced manufacturing facility. It incorporates some of the latest food processing equipment. Strict standards apply to producing Yakult, ensuring 99% of the raw ingredients end up in the bottle. Based in Dandenong, the Yakult factory makes Yakult for Australia and New Zealand. 

This visit will enable participants to view the entire production process safely through large viewing windows, including the opportunity to taste the finished product.
