“The High School Career Expo” has announced the dates for their national tour starting off in Roodeport this month. South Africa’s favourite careers exhibition is designed to provide both primary and middle school students with opportunities and guidance for choosing a high school and selecting their subjects.
For the older teenagers in attendance, the HIGH SCHOOL CAREER EXPO is also designed to assist and equip the youth with the necessary tools to succeed in high school, tertiary education and beyond.
“The High School Career Expo targets thousands of young individuals from all walks of life, as well as their parents, education institutions, private sector businesses and even Government officials. We are excited to be rolling the expo out all over of the country and thanks SABC Education for their involvement,” says Henry from the HIGH SCHOOL CAREER EXPO
She goes on to add, “All primary, middle & high school kids and parents can learn more about the public & private high schools including special programs, extracurricular activities and admissions criteria. You can find out which high school is most suitable for your child’s future.”
Prospective students will be able to meet with representatives from a wide range of universities, technikons, colleges and other tertiary institutions. They will also gain insight and career advice from leading field specialists to better understand the expectations and roles of their potential professions. The Student Expo aims to feed students with the valuable knowledge to make educated decisions regarding their future through discussions and presentations. Students can also learn how to secure student loan and even bursaries. They will get advice on how to manage finances when living away from home, should you take a gap year or not as well as share information with other school leavers and parents.
