Melton students will benefit from an ICT Careers Expo in July to be held at Victoria University, Melton Campus.
The Expo will be held on Monday 30th July and will feature guest speakers such as IT professionals who are ex-students of the Melton schools attending. There will be a range of inspiring, interactive workshops and a number of stalls displaying information on ICT careers, the ICT industry and courses available. Students will be provided with useful careers information, and there will be prizes and give aways. Students who are interested in IT as a career will be invited to attend. Transport will be provided to and from the event. The event is funded through the ICT: Start Here, Go Anywhere campaign, Department of Business and Innovation, with contributions by the Brimbank/Melton LLEN, Victoria University and other industry organisations and representatives.
A similar event is being developed for Brimbank secondary school students for later in the year.
