Skillex has a clear focus on addressing industries in the state facing present and future skill shortages.
This section of the event will showcase skilled areas and vocational education and training, including traditional and nontraditional trades as well as health care, information technology, retail, hospitality, hair and beauty and business services.
Interactivity is the key to Skillex where exhibitors invite visitors to come and try and get a hands-on experience with various employers and educators. It’s led by the WorldSkills Try a Trade section, which provides visitors the opportunity to try such trades and skills as bricklaying, hair dressing, motor engineering, tiling and many more skills.
The 2011 Seminar Programs will change this year with an increase to two separate seminar theatres featuring presentations from a range of education providers, government agencies, employers and industry bodies.
National Career Development Week and the Career Industry Council of Australia also will be working with the event in promoting career development and the need for everyone to develop skills to manage their careers, learning, work and lives.
Visitors to this year’s expo can engage with employers, career advisers, education and training providers.
