Barossa Pathways to Employment Expo
The 9th Barossa Pathways to Employment Expo is to take place on Wednesday 6th August 2014. The always popular Expo, developed in conjunction with Regional Development Australia Barossa and Barossa Lower North Futures, will be held atNuriootpa TAFE SA and will cover a wide range of industry pathways with spe-cialised speakers covering Transport, Heavy Equipment, Mining Industry and Rail.
The Expo is divided into two community sessions, one at 10:00 am and one over lunchtime. This is where community members, unemployed, underemployed, people looking for a career change, parents, school teachers, workplace practise students and Year 12's attend to "roam the expo." These ses-sions enable participants to source information from the induttry specialists and ask questions specific to their pathways.
The Expo also has two school sessions throughout the day. Each session consists of 3 targeted presentations. Students pre-register for the expo with their top three options and are timetabled into sessions according to their interests.
For those interested in Transport and Logistics careers the topic of presentations will cover "Did you know that the Transport Industry involves much more than driving trucks?" & "Rail: Getting your product to market cheaper, greener & the roles required."
As well as the presentations there will also be an interactive workshop where students can participate in hands on practicable experiences with working models including a forklift.
