Expo information

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
  • employers
  • service providers
  • community organisations

NT Skills Employment and Careers Expo –Sensory Friendly Hour

This Sensory Friendly Hour will be a time for participants and their families to enjoy a quieter, less-crowded visit to The Skills Employment and Careers Expo in Darwin.  This initiative aims to reduce barriers for people with disabilities and sensory processing disorders to engage with the expo and have equal access to career and training options.

This opportunity may be appealing to parents/carers of people who have mobility challenges, struggle to communicate or become easily overwhelmed by stimuli. During this hour, The Expo will offer:

  • A smaller crowd capacity
  • Lower audio volume on exhibits
  • Dimmed lighting
  • Sensory friendly chill out space

This hour will be run on Day 1 of the Darwin Skills, Employment & Careers Expo -Friday 24 August from 1:30pm- 2:30pm and Day 2 of the Darwin Skills, Employment & Careers Expo -Friday 24 August from 12:00-1:00pm

Meet Tyrah Jade May, Tyrah is 19 years old and is completing her Certificate III in Business Administration and has recently completed her first month of employment as a Trainee Administrator with the Northern Land Council. She joined the Transition to Work (TtW) service 6 months ago and has been kicking goals ever since!!! "After losing my Grandfather in 2014, I hit rock bottom. Nothing could make me feel happy, I fell into depression and didn't leave the house. All I wanted was to be left alone. Making wrong choices and disappointing my family members, I came to the realisation that what I was doing was out of character and not me. Getting involved with TtW has put my mindset in another place and I want nothing but to be successful in life. Working at NLC has given me a second chance in life, especially because it's a dream come true to follow in my Grandfather's footsteps working on my own land." Congratulations Tyrah on your amazing journey so far!!! . . . #youthworxnt #transitiontowork #northernlandcouncil #caringforcountry #traineeship #strivingforsuccess #proud #achievement
