Event description

Description

It’s difficult to advise young people about careers these days. As a parent you want to help them find their feet — but things have changed since you were at High School.

A roadmap to the future North

It's esimated that 40% of Australian jobs will be replaced by technology within 10 years and 65% of preschool children will work in new jobs that don’t exist yet.

Find Their Feet is an immersive careers event for Year 8, 9 and 10 students and their parents designed to help you navigate this uncertain future.

Much more than a careers expo

Find Their Feet is an immersive journey through time, from our industrial past to the technologically advanced future. After reflecting on their own unique interests, skills and strengths, students will place an avatar of themselves in the future world of work — a vast immersive landscape representing the future North made up of six distinct zones:

  • People Services (Health care and Social Assistance);
  • Food (Retail, Markets, etc.);
  • Construction;
  • Life Long Learning (Education & Training);
  • Tech / Bio Tech (Professional, scientific and technical services); and
  • The New Manufacturing (Trades and Manufacturing).

Future-focussed industry experts will be on hand to guide students on their journey and help with practical advice, support and next steps.

  • Be surprised by the skills students already have, and how useful they will be in the future
  • Transform anxiety into excitement as students see a place for themselves in the future world of work
  • Be ready and able to support students take the all-important next steps.

These are FREE events but places are limited. Don't miss out. Register NOW! There are four sessions, and each session will run for forty minutes. Make sure you choose the right session time for your school.
