Free Careers Expo from 16-18 August at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre
Now in its tenth year, the SkillsWest Expo brings together employers and training organisations, giving visitors a unique opportunity to speak with industry experts about career pathways and vocational education and training (VET).
A key attraction is the dedicated TAFE STEM hub in the 'Try a Skill' zone, where attendees can experience hands-on activities in new and emerging technologies.
Visitors can pilot a plane; try their hand at cyber security and deflect a hacking attempt; use CAD software to build a 3D ship; or become a CSI agent for the day analysing a hair sample using laboratory technology.
The Expo will host ten WorldSkills competitions testing some of the State's most talented apprentices and trainees in a battle of skills such as bricklaying, plastering, heavy automotive, refrigeration and plumbing.
Jobs and Skills Centre representatives will be available at the Expo for jobseekers and students seeking career advice.
