TAFE SA Regional is excited to announce that the annual Anangu Work Expo will start travelling around the APY Lands in early June. This expo, partly coordinated by TAFE SA, will link remote Aboriginal communities with education, training and work opportunities.
From Monday 4 June to Friday 8 June the Anangu Work Expo will travel across the APY Lands connecting Aboriginal communities with over 20 stall holders from the education, training, industry, government and health sectors.
The expo gives job seekers a chance to speak directly to organisations about jobs and training opportunities, with locals encouraged to give on-the-spot expressions of interest to employers.
The expo promises to build on the success of the two previous events, with last year’s expo attracting over 800 visitors. The expo is a day of family fun with a free barbeque and performances by local musicians, and time for community to interact with stallholders.
“TAFE SA Regional won the national award for Large Training Provider of the Year for 2011 in part because of the increasingly important role we provide with culturally appropriate and relevant courses for these local communities”, says TAFE SA Regional Managing Director Denise Janek.
“As one of the lead organisations involved in starting the Anangu Work Expo, TAFE SA Regional sees the event as an opportunity to further our connections with communities in the APY Lands and take training opportunities to the most remote parts of our state”, said Ms Janek.
The APY (Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara) Lands are situated in the far north west of the state, approximately 1,200 kilometres from Adelaide. The Anangu Work Expo presents the increased education, training and work opportunities in the State's far north west that lead to social and economic benefits for the whole community.
