Careers Expos

This has been a busy term for the Careers Department! Approximately 100 Year 11-13 students from Awatapu College went to the Sort-It Expo at the Central Energy Trust Stadium earlier in the term. Students enjoyed a showcase of industry, training and educational pathways to spark ideas and thoughts for future options.

Year 11-13 students were also given the opportunity to attend JobFest at Manfield on Wednesday 20 June. This expo, driven by Talent Central and supported by over 50 businesses from around Palmerston North, invited students to participate in new and exciting business opportunities with over 100 jobs on offer.

Senior students interested in careers in the health sector also attended the Health in Careers Day facilitated by MidCentral DHB. During the day, students were given the opportunity to talk to range of health professionals and took part in some hands on activities.
