One-stop shop for stu­dents


Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

FOR stu­dents seek­ing in­for­ma­tion on study and work op­tions, the Western Syd­ney Ca­reers Expo is a good place to start.

Re­sources for Cour­ses or­gan­ises the event, which mar­ket­ing and events man­ager Tina Tolich said was a one-stop shop.

From June 18-21 it is ex­pected to at­tract 23,000 visi­tors. En­try is $10 per per­son and the sem­i­nars are free.

“The English seminar is the most pop­u­lar be­cause ev­ery stu­dent does English,” Ms Tolich said.

“Our pre­sen­ters are ac­tive teach­ers of English and they are able to give an in­sight into what the examiners are look­ing for.”

The sem­i­nars in­clude most HSC sub­jects in­clud­ing maths, chem­istry, bi­ol­ogy, busi­ness stud­ies, le­gal stud­ies and an­cient history.

HSC in the Hol­i­days is a cru­cial one, given how few days of school re­main for Year 12 stu­dents.

“The game-de­signed sem­i­nars are chock-a-block,” Ms Tolich said.

“And the study tips seminar is al­ways pop­u­lar.”

There are 100 sem­i­nars to choose from over the four days.

Ms Tolich’s fo­cus this year is to in­volve par­ents more.

“Par­ents can feel pow­er­less but when they go to an event like this and get the in­for­ma­tion, they can have an in­formed dis­cus­sion with their child and help with the de­ci­sion-mak­ing,” she said.

The 145 ex­hibitors in­clude univer­si­ties and pri­vate col­leges.

The Western Syd­ney Ca­reers Expo is a one-stop shop for ca­reer and study ad­vice.
