Launch students careers at Careers Expo
WA's only complete careers, training and employment expo returns in mid-May 2022 with even more inspiration on careers, tertiary education and vocational training. Alongside the usual huge array of local and interstate tertiary colleges, universities, training organisations and industry associations you’ll find the VET Expo showcasing apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities. Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre - and entry is free.
All the best for your students
The best time
The Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo is held in May. This is the best time of the year as it sits at an important juncture in the school calendar: near the start of Term 2; well ahead of when students must select subjects for upper school or register for tertiary education courses and in advance of the university open days. Opening hours are:
9:00am to 3:00pm on Thursday 12 May 2022
9:00am to 3:00pm on Friday 13 May 2022
10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday 14 May 2022
10:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday 15 May 2022
The best venue
The Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo is held at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC). Located on the edge of the Perth CBD, it's within walking distance of bus, train and ferry services and well-connected to the Freeway and other major roads. The venue's amenities include cafes, coffee shops, wash-rooms and expansive public foyers for congregating groups. During the event, the venue is configured to facilitate visits by large school groups including special provision for buses to safely set students down inside the pavilions.
The best event
Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo is Western Australia's leading careers and education expo for school students from Years 7 to 12. Most interest typically comes from Years 8, 9 and 10 of secondary school but there's always a large contingent from Years 11 and 12. Alongside displays by all local universities and many from outside of the state, there's representation from the TAFE sector, private education and training colleges, industry associations and employers.
