Career options for the Territory’s young people are being highlighted during a series of expos this month.
Charles Darwin University (CDU) will be represented at several career expos during August, highlighting pathways to study for young people both in and out of school.
The first series of expos, organised by the Department of Employment, Education and Training (DEET), will be held in Darwin, Alice Springs, Katherine, Nhulunbuy and Tennant Creek.
The events aim to provide young people with information so they can make informed decisions about their future.
Large numbers of local school students are expected to attend the CDU booth during specially arranged morning sessions.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend in the afternoon to talk with CDU staff about pathways to further education.
The 2008 Darwin Careers Expo will be held on Thursday August 7 at Foskeys Pavilion, Darwin Showgrounds.
The expo is open to the general public from 3pm to 6pm.
Regional expo dates are: Wednesday August 13 (Tennant Creek), Thursday August 14 (Alice Springs), Monday August 18 (Katherine), and Wednesday August 20 (Nhulunbuy).
And for the first time, a second major career expo is coming to Darwin.
CDU will have a stand at the National Careers and Employment Expo at the Darwin Convention Centre where thousands of career-minded people are expected to attend.
Students can take part in a range of activities including seminars, stage presentations and demonstrations.
The Darwin event will take place on Friday August 29 and Saturday August 30.
