Careers forum for young Tablelanders
YOUNG people will be connected with local employers in the health and social assistance, primary industry and retail sectors at a Tablelands Regional Council-hosted Careers Forum early next month.
"The forum is part of our multi-stage Tablelands Tomorrow program and will improve awareness, create stronger connections, and identify programs and referrals pathways to universities, training, industry and community programs,” Mayor Rod Marti said.
“By raising the profile of in-demand skills in our region and connecting them to young Tablelanders, we can provide linkages to jobs, work placements, and volunteer and study opportunities.
“The forum will be an opportunity to network with employers, industry and training providers to better understand their career, training and employment pathways and for employers/industry to present themselves and their career opportunities.”
The Tablelands Careers Forum, which is targeted at young people aged 15–24 years, will be on Wednesday 1 March from 10am-1.30pm at the Coordination Centre, 15 Vernon Street, Atherton.
This project is funded by the Australian Government’s National Careers Institute (NCI) Partnerships Grant.
