Fraser Coast Careers Expo to showcase opportunities
15 April, 2019
This year’s Fraser Coast Careers Expo in May will be a great opportunity for high school students, parents, teachers, career advisers and principals to look at what the future could hold.
Fraser Coast Acting Mayor Darren Everard said it was important to empower students to think carefully about their future career and study options.
“The Fraser Coast Careers Expo 2019 is an ideal forum to showcase future pathways for Year 9 to 12 students,” Cr Everard said.
“Employment, education and training providers are showcased in the one location to give attendees the opportunity to engage directly with a wide range of exhibitors.
“I encourage as many schools, training providers and employers to take part.
“Last year’s expo was very successful with more than 1200 people attending. I’m excited about this year’s event, which will also be opened to the public.”
Cr Everard said Council continues to work with the Queensland and Australian Governments to improve local employment prospects.
“Fostering strong school-to-work pathways is an important priority.”
This year’s expo will be held at TAFE Hervey Bay on Wednesday 22 May. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
The Fraser Coast Careers Expo is delivered by TAFE Queensland with support from Fraser Coast Regional Council. Exhibitors are urged to register their interest through TAFE Queensland.
