Skills Employment Careers Expo 2017 - Tennant Creek

03 November 2017

Bill Adams with Linda Scroop in the Skills Employment Careers Expo Tennant Creek display 2017


CDU, as one of 6 Expo Champions, proudly participated in the Tennant Creek Expo, as one of 26 exhibitors.  We were advised that it was the biggest number of exhibitors in the history of the event and hundreds came through the door.  Attending from CDU were Helen Hargraves and Linda Scroop (our TC based staff), Bill Adams (visiting Sport & Rec Lecturer) & Strachy (Remote Engagement Liaison Officer, Barkly & Central Australia).

Queries included:
• How CDU can address the special needs of students, e.g. ADHD in teaching and assessment?
• Indigenous support?
• Course availability in Tennant Creek?
• Course costs
• Opportunities for research work?

Information gathering:

A vital role of the Expo is networking.  Given the nature of the town AND region, the CDU staff were able to discuss specific communities and their needs, issues we need to be aware of, as well as the scope for future business.
