The Northern Sydney Apprenticeship and Traineeship Expo is just over 2 weeks
away on Thursday 16 August, from 3.30 – 6.30pm.

The event is open to Students, Parents and Carers; it is in its 8th year and has
relocated this year to The Concourse in Chatswood – an easy walk from Chatswood
Station.

This FREE event is an opportunity for students from Year 9 upwards to meet a wide
range of training organisations and to discuss training and career options outside the
university pathway.

Apprenticeships generally last four years and cover traditional trade areas such as:
building and construction; hairdressing; cooking; electrical; automotive; engineering
and manufacturing etc. Traineeships generally cover a much wider range of
occupations than apprenticeships, however the training is usually shorter, lasting
between one and two years. A number of higher level qualification traineeships have
now been introduced which take longer to complete. Both apprenticeships and
traineeships are easily linked to further vocational education and university studies.

Please find attached more information.
