Expo returns interest

Generates hundreds of enquiries for Avondale

The facilities and support Avondale provides as host of an annual regional careers expo ensures its return to the college is a “no brainer.”

The Central Coast Careers Pathways Expo brings together exhibitors from the business, government, education and trade sectors and senior students from about 30 public and private schools in the region. It returned to Avondale College of Higher Education’s Lake Macquarie campus for a fourth consecutive year this past Tuesday (June 24), generating more enquiries—419 this year—and more goodwill.

“Working with Avondale is so good,” says coordinator Phil Williamson, the head teacher for vocational education and training at Northlakes High School in San Remo. He speaks of the facilities—the Chan Shun Auditorium is the primary venue—and the logistical support from Marketing Services, particularly the student workers it employs, as keys to the expo’s success. “The decision our planning committee makes to return each year is a no brainer.”

The agreement for Avondale to host the expo will enter its fifth year next year.
