The annual careers event for the Coffs-Clarence region is being organised by Mid Coast Connect for Thursday 16 May.

ETC, Southern Cross University and The City of Coffs Harbour are event partners.

This initiative raises the awareness and aspirations of young people about careers.  Some 1200 senior students from twenty high schools in the region (Macksville to Dorrigo to Grafton) will attend.  Participating students arrive in groups from 9:00 am and the event finishes at 1:00 pm.

A strong local economy is underpinned by an appropriately qualified, and motivated, workforce.  This workforce development initiative contributes to encouraging young people to build a career in the region by informing them about vocational opportunities and the pathways to employment.

Throughout the day exhibitors will showcase careers in their industry.  These showcases:

  • Include activities or displays that encourage interaction/engagement with students
  • Demonstrate the range of occupations within the industry
  • Provide information on learning pathways and support available

Career showcases are supported by Health Careers Workshops.  These workshops are ten-minute career conversations in small groups (10-12 students).

Health Careers Workshops include the following health professions:

Aboriginal Health

Aged Services


Home and Community Care

Medical Radiation Science

Nursing and Midwifery

Nutrition and Dietetics

Occupational Therapy





Student role models also contribute to the workshop discussion.
