One-stop shop for students
SEMINARS OFFER GUIDANCE
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.
