Barossa Pathway to Employment Expo

The 9th Barossa Pathways to Employment Expo took place on the 6th of August at TAFE's campus in Nuriootpa. Over 1,000 participants attended on the day looking to gather all the infor-mation they could get on pathways to employment from repre-sentatives of about 30 industries.

The SA Freight Council was on hand to deliver a presentation on the Rail industry and the many exciting positions that com-bine to ensure the continued efficiency, maintenance and de-velopment of the industry.

It is the ability to obtain accurate information on such a large variety of career options in the one location that contributes to the continuing success of the Expo.

Year 10 students that outlined an interest in an industry were given an opportunity to sit down in a small group for a 20 mi-nute information session and hear firsthand the opportunities available as well as ask any questions they had on the indus-try. There were 6 such presentations throughout the day.

This gave the an opportunity to students to gain a comprehen-sive understanding on different career opportunities as well as making connections with local employers.

SAFC's presentation on career pathways into rail at the Expo has been made public and can be accessed through our Ca-reer's Information website The LINC (click here).
