Careers Day Out is now in its 22nd year. The event was established by and still is organised by a group of dedicated local community volunteers wanting to make a difference. The event offers education options, career advice and even employment opportunities. Careers Day Out is one of the largest education, training and employment expos in Northern Victoria, with over 1,900 visitors attending in 2019 and growing every year.
This year Careers Day Out is proudly sponsored by La Trobe University and GOTAFE, helping all regional students from Year's 9 to to 12 to discover their career pathway, further training options or future employment.
Our exhibitors this year will be providing interactive displays to give students opportunities to get involved in hands on activities. With a vast range of exhibitors including TAFE’s, Universities, other training providers, industry associations, local industry, employers, employment and support agencies, we are sure the students will not be bored. Oh, and don't forget the Emergency Services scenario display. Watch as Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria, CFA and Search and Rescue demonstrate their roles through an accident scene.
We encourage active participation by students through interactive displays, competitions, give-aways, and loads of other activities to ensure the day is engaging and worthwhile for everyone.
