Education, training and employment information at Skills West Expo

The Skills West Expo is on again this year from Friday 18 August to Sunday 20 August 2017 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The expo is free to attend and allows visitors to explore tertiary and VET course options, find out about traineeships and apprenticeships, and plan new career pathways.

Perth Career Centre will have a stall at the Skills West Expo, and our staff will be available to provide free and independent training information and career guidance. Once you’ve researched career and training options at the expo, we can help you plan your next step. Due to the number of people who will be attending the expo, please understand that we are only able to offer short sessions with each visitor to our stall. If you aren’t able to speak to us at the expo, you are always welcome to contact us through webchat, phone and face to face throughout the year to discuss your career options.

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. It features more than 1 000 events around Australia, including those delivered by universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums and science centres.

If you are considering a science career, or your children have an interest in science, National Science Week is a great opportunity to explore this interest further.

The Perth Science Festival will kick off events here in Western Australia, running Saturday 12 August to Sunday 13 August, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Perth Cultural Centre. You can also follow the Perth Science Festival on Facebook and Instagram to see the ‘best of the ‛fest’! For a full list of events near you, visit the National Science Week events page.
