CAREERS EXPO 2017 – Full Program

Dear Students and Parents

All Warrnambool and District Secondary Colleges in conjunction with the region’s Further Education providers will be combining to host the Biennial Careers Expo during July/August 2017. The primary aim of the Expo is to assist students and their parents to research a wide range of careers options in preparation for the important decisions students will make over the next few years.

The Careers Expo is conducted every two years and from past experience and testimonials, is an invaluable experience and extremely useful in assisting students in their career/pathway decision making and transition process. Research clearly indicates that families who research career options early have a greater degree of success in navigating through the many career options.

Guest presenters are current practitioners in their chosen vocations and they will outline the day to day tasks involved within their career, the career paths and education and training required to obtain employment in their field / industry as well as potential related career prospects / advancement opportunities.
