Linking Macarthur Students to Careers

Jun 19, 2014    

Some 3,000 Macarthur High School Students, representing Years 10, 11 and 12, were recently invited to attend the Macarthur Area Careers Expo held at the YMCA Minto Indoor Sports Centre.

It is a great way for students to learn about the many occupations and opportunities that await them.

The level of interest was excellent according to four Year 10 students from Ingleburn High School. The girls had recently attended an expo at UWS and had prepared themselves for the Macarthur Area Careers Expo. They were eager to find out as much as they could. All four students had a good idea of where they were headed from careers in nursing, primary teaching, tourism and counseling.

Taylah Zimmerman said “I found the Expo to be really useful. It gives you ideas for the future”.

All four girls had also done work placement. Michelle Stralow commented “My work placement was good. It’s great to see what the world of work is like and now I have an idea of what to expect.”

Work Placement for Macarthur Students is co-ordinated by MWLP – Linking Youth who were one of the Exhibitors on the day.
MWLP’s Amber Hope said “Our work focuses on supporting and nurturing the career development, transition and vocational learning needs of 13 – 19 year olds, so it is really positive to see students in Year 10 so focused on their futures”.

Many other students were seeking information on Traineeships and Apprenticeships and there was plenty of information on hand for them.
From careers in Hospitality, Beauty, Health, Business, Entertainment, Graphic Design, Medicine and Music, just to name a few – there was something there for everyone.
