Futures Fair 2022

WELCOME TO FUTURES FAIR 2022

Welcome to your opportunity to participate in our Futures Fair in Term 2! This resource has been created for Students in Years 10 to 12 and their Parents.

We have arranged a series of mini-exhibitions and presentations with invited guests from UAC, universities, training providers and employers over a number of weeks this term.

One event is directed at Year 12 students and their parents, others are open for attendance by students in Years 10 to 12.

These activities have been arranged to allow you to gather information that will help you make decisions about your post-school study and work pathway. When you have this information, you will need to have some conversations to guide you in how to achieve these goals – our Careers Programme involves opportunities to attend general sessions, and as well, make appointments for individual conversations.

Let’s go!
