Careers practitioner and pathways leader Jade Shiner said the expo focused on introducing students to all opportunities post-schooling.

“In terms of what the universities require from them, they can make their subjects selection [based on the] choices [available]. It also gives them an opportunity to see what’s out there,” she said.

“It’s a good opportunity to talk to those at the facilities to explain what courses are involved.

“All the students have been really polite and engaging, and asking the questions that … actually shows they’ve thought about where they want to go.”

Volunteering groups such as Fire Rescue Victoria, Victoria Police, and other emergency services also made an appearance, giving students a variety of options to choose from.

“I think having a variety allows students to have more choices, but also to have an understanding of where potentially that could lead to,” Ms Shiner said.

Ms Shiner said the expo came at a time when senior students are starting to consider their subject selection and post-schooling applications mid-year.

“We start subject selection early term three, Year 12s have to do their university applications or TAFE applications next term,” she said.

“Our young men and women looking to do trades can potentially leave school at the end of September, so getting their understanding of what options are out there just makes their journey a bit easier.”
