2023 Central Coast Career Pathways Expo – Thank you!

On Tuesday 4 April the Central Coast Career Pathways Expo was held at Avondale University, giving thousands of Central Coast High School Students the opportunity to explore the different pathways after high school to reach their dream career!

Central Coast Group Training worked with Avondale University to bring this event to life, including an army of Student Helpers who assisted with setting up, packing down, and welcoming and directing students and teachers.

We were honored to have Liesl Tesch AM join us for the opening ceremony and inspire students to be brave, ask questions, and open their minds to the variety of opportunities that are open to them. We would also like to thank Sunnefa Hamar Penning (University of Newcastle) and Dr Darren Morton (Avondale University) for being part of our opening, and to Chris Thew from Barabarang for providing an acknowledgment to country.

Central Coast Group Training would like to thank Sue Kennedy and Belinda Cooper (Training Services NSW), Sara Cutting (Head Teacher Careers South) & Phillip Williamson (Head Teacher Careers North) for their support of this exciting event.

An event like this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors. We would like to thank the following for their support:

University of Newcastle (Gold Sponsor)
Sanitarium (Silver Sponsor)
Central Coast Council (Silver Sponsor)
TAFE NSW (Silver Sponsor)
Master Builders Australia (Bronze Sponsor)
CCATAC – Central Coast Apprenticeship & Traineeship Advisory Committee (Bronze Sponsor)
VERTO (Australia) (Bronze Sponsor)

This year we trialed an online guide for students, giving them access to close to 100 exhibitors direct to their phones. This means that the students have the direct links to each exhibitor to continue to learn more, share information and have discussions with family long after the Expo is complete. This can be viewed here: https://lnkd.in/g65tZMMi

Finally, we’d like to thank all of the attending exhibitors, students and teachers for being a part of the Central Coast Career Pathways Expo and we are looking forward to continuing to make this event bigger and better next year!
