• Students study career options at FACTS Day

    12 May, 2014

    Around 1000 Year 12 students from across the Central West gathered at Charles Sturt University for the annual Facts About Careers and Tertiary Study Day. FACTS Day is organised by the Central West Careers Advisers Association to assist students explore their future career and employment opportunities. Students spent half their visit with more than 60 organisations, including universities, private providers, TAFE, Centrelink, police and other government agencies.

    Thomas Kay from All Saints’ College at the Careers Expo.

    Thomas Kay (Year 12) was one of the students exploring his options at the expo. "I am hoping to do something in agricultural science at university," Thomas said and he thought the expo was very helpful for students who were deciding what they wanted to do for a career. "It gives students the opportunity to look at the courses and careers they could get into," he said. "Among my friends there is probably a 50:50 split, some know what they want to do, others aren’t sure, and a lot of them are planning on taking a Gap year."
