Trades Facilitator Report - June 2011

Trades Expo 8th July to be held at the Memorial Hall

Trying something hands-on is what our year 10 and 11 students from Wanganui Schools will have the opportunity to do at our Trades Expo on the 8th July held in the Memorial Hall.  Students will be able to check out career options and see where a future in the trades could take them.
The aim of the day is to broaden student’s horizons by being exposed to as many job/career options as possible in preparation for designing their own career and mapping out pathways for their future.
Students will have the opportunity to:

  • Try something hands on
  • Talk to Apprentices and Trades people
  • Get information from Training Organisations on how to get into the trades and the pathways they can take
  • Complete a survey identifying what career pathway could be of interest to them.  This will lead into their participation in November Industry Days, where students will have an opportunity to explore the career of their interest (a day in the Industry)


Parents and Caregivers are also invited along to our Trades Expo, this is a vital opportunity to discuss options with your child and start conversations about their future.  You may even find something new for yourself.

Trades Expo is a partnership between Chamber of Commerce, Careers NZ, Schools, Industry, Work and Income, Training Providers and UCOL Wanganui

Sponsors of this event:  Whanganui Community Foundation, MSD, Council and Industry involved.
