The Skills, Employment and Careers Expo (formerly the Northern Territory Government Careers Expo) is an annual event that travels across the Northern Territory and was originally aimed at helping young people engage in further education and employment.
The expo has grown seeing attendance levels of a couple of hundred at one event to approximately 5,000 over five events across the Territory, and is no longer specifically designed just for young students.
The Skills, Employment and Careers Expo offers a unique opportunity for anyone interested in starting, changing, re-skilling or upgrading their career to meet the needs of a diverse range of organisations that are both locally-based and from around Australia.
The expos are free community events managed by the Northern Territory Government, providing the opportunity for attendees to engage with:
- leading training providers
- higher education institutions
- employment agencies
- group training companies
- service providers
- community organisations
