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 23 August from 1:30pm- 2:30pm and Day 2 of the Darwin Skills, Employment & Careers Expo -Saturday 24 August from 12:00-1:00pm
