BLACKTOWN mayor Len Robinson wants students to visit the Western Sydney Try A Skill Expo at Kevin Betts Stadium, Mount Druitt, on Monday and Tuesday (June 23-24), from 9am to 3pm.
The popular event shows what skills are needed to work in particular industries/professions and where training can be provided.
Participants will get knowledge for trades with vehicles, construction, client services, hospitality, IT, creative arts, metals and engineering, rural trades and transport and logistics.
"There is a skills and employment gap in Blacktown city and western Sydney that needs to be addressed," Cr Robinson said.
The expo is a partnership between Apprentice Power, Nepean Careers Forum, TAFE, Bunnings Minchinbury, Defence Force Recruiting, Ability Options, TAFE NSW WorldSkills unit and Blacktown Council and is supported by the Business Education and Community Alliance Partnership Broker Network.
Schools can book through the Nepean Careers Forum.
