The Explore program offers a creative approach for developing students' career aspirations through their primary years, through exploring themes of adventure and discovery. Through a series of lessons and activities, they develop an awareness of their own skills and interests while discovering which skills are necessary for a range of different jobs.
The Explore Careers Pathway Expo is when Year 5 students come onto campus to learn about various careers through presentations and hands-on activities.

What is required from me?
- Briefly introduce yourself, your job title, skills performed and career pathways relevant to this job.
- Pathway information will be provided in a poster format (approx 2-3 minutes).
- Commence the hands-on exhibit.
- Be enthusiastic about having a job and doing your job - share your job/career highlights.
- Highlight aspects of your job that are relevant to school (e.g. maths to work out quantities/prices/ratios; communication/social skills in liaising with customers; reading instructions etc).
- Talk to and engage with the students appropriately for their age (9-10 years).
Please ensure your exhibit is age appropriate. We encourage exhibitors to incorporate hands-on activities into their sessions wherever possible, as these are more effective at engaging the students. If you would like assistance in developing a practical activity for your exhibit, you are welcome to contact our program developers via firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help you out with some ideas.
