Welcome to Careers Expo 2021
Re-launching in April 2021
Perth's longest-running careers, training and employment expo is back. This year we missed celebrating our twentieth anniversary so we're going all out to make sure the next Careers Expo is our best yet. We'll continue the tradition of being WA's only careers event that brings together all of the local and many eastern states universities together with a huge range of vocational and professional training organisations, industry associations and employers.
But 2021 will be special as we welcome a new neighbour: the WorldSkills Australia National Championships and Skills Expo. Staged over the first three days of the Careers Expo, WorldSkills will showcase 50 skills and trade competitions involving apprentices, trainees and students from around Australia.
Careers Expo and Worldskills Australia National Championships will be hosted at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC). Entry is free.
Four big days*
Over four big days from 29 April to 2 May 2021, nearly 100 exhibitors – universities, TAFEs, government departments, training providers and employers – will represent the full range of career and employment pathways. And from Thursday to Saturday, WorldSkills will be staging its National Championships across five pavilions of the PCEC.
It’s an unmissable opportunity for students in years 7–12 to decide on tertiary or vocational courses or to select upper-school subjects, and to get face-to-face with employers. It’s also great inspiration for adults looking for an exciting change of career.
The Careers Expo has been staged since 2000. With over 160,000 students and parents attending over the period, it has provided them with the best opportunity to talk with all of WA’s universities and major training and vocational organisations, at one time and under one roof.
