Skills, Employment & Careers Expo 2014

This years 2014 Skills, Employment & Careers Expos went off with a bang! Over 2 weeks and 5 locations YouthWorX NT delivered 5 successful expos in Darwin, Tennant Creek, Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy and Katherine with nearly 200 exhibitors and over 6000 attendees. The Career Expos provides a valuable opportunity for local students and job seekers to meet and engage with businesses, employers, training providers and education institutions, both local and international.

 

H Hotel Hospitality cooking up a storm for the attendees and Charles Darwin Universitys huge set up at the Expo. Charles Darwin University got voted Best Exhibitor by the students and attendees. 

Careers and Skills Passport Competition - Each person attending the Expo recieved a Careers and Skills Passport on entry. They were required to go around and ask the exhibitors a relevant question to receive a sticker for their passport. When their passport was filled with 8 stickers, it went into the box to be part of the draw to win an Ipad mini! - Pictured: Winner of the passport competition at the Katherine Skills, Employment & Careers Expo! 

Overall, the five 2014 Skills, Employment and Careers Expos were a huge success. We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our exhibitors for their participation, travel and making the most out of the 2014 Expos! We hope to see you all again in 2015!

Gapuwiyak Careers Day 2014


Students from Gapuwiyak School had lots of fun learning about local job opportunities and also got to have a behind-the-scenes look at some local businesses at the Gapuwiyak Careers Day on 24 September 2014.
The day was a collaboration between the School, YouthWorX NT and local employers and careers on offer included hospitality, education, health, retail, sport & rec, police and civil works.  The RJCP men and women’s groups also participated on the day, with students learning about sewing and hairdressing with the women’s group and fixing small engines with the men’s group.  It was a great day!
