Our local team was proud to represent Arc Infrastructure at the Central Regional TAFE Open Day in Geraldton in June, designed to help Year 9 and 10 students from across the Mid West explore post-school career opportunities.

The event forms part of the Year 9 Career Taster Program (CTP), developed under the State Government’s Job Plan.

The Year 9 Career Taster Program aims to inspire secondary school students to become 'career curious' about further study opportunities and potential careers.

The program offers industry-led experiences and activities that introduce students to new and different areas of work and career opportunities, as well as career development training that will assist them in making informed decisions on their subject selections and post-school options.

Around 600 secondary school students attended and toured the facilities, heard from current CTP students and lecturers on various career pathways, and participated in fun, hands-on activities. 

There were many other organisations in attendance, including ATC Work Smart, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, Geraldton universities, Mid West Ports Authority, the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Rio Tinto and the Western Australia Police Force.

After exploring the campus and speaking with the groups represented on the day, students enjoyed a sausage sizzle and kicking the popular Arc Infrastructure footballs around.
You can visit the Year 9 Career Taster portal to find out more about the program.
