Parents, career-changers and students can meet with exhibitors to discuss new courses designed to meet professional and employer’s needs and dynamic changes to future employment.

The 2024 program includes an evening Parents and Students Information Session on Wednesday 7th August 2024, 4 to 7pm.

Exhibitors come from a broad cross section of providers including Federal and State Government institutions, tertiary institutions (local, interstate and overseas), employer organisations, private colleges, apprenticeship centres and numerous individual businesses.

We encourage recognition of the rapidly changing nature of the jobs market, into the future – be it professional, business or commercial, trade or a range of emerging entrepreneurial opportunities. Thus there is a need for multi-skilling through innovation, digital engagement, financial knowledge and people management and to expose students, teachers and parents to courses that will meet the needs of future employment options.
