tu­ni­ties and marks the be­gin­ning of a sig­nif­i­cant event ini­tia­tive, a new skills-fo­cused vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion sec­tion called Skillex.

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.
