Alice Springs Career Expo

Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education attended the Alice Springs Careers Expo held at St Philips College on the 16th of August 2012. The Expo is held every year in Alice Springs to encourage school leavers to consider their educational and vocational futures. Heather Kudrenko from Student Services and Senior Lecturer Lynn Moloney from the Health Science Team organised the Batchelor Institute stand, with the able assistance of Imran Naveed, Senior Marketing and Communications Advisor. Many industry and training organisations were represented, including Batchelor Institute’s partner in Higher Education provision, Charles Darwin University.

The Batchelor Institute stand was highly visible.  Thanks to the Arts and Craft team for providing two screen-printed outfits made from materials created by Batchelor Institute students and a length of decorative fabric that was adapted for use as a feature tablecloth. Great interest was shown by a range of visitors including school leavers and their parents. While there were a lot of education providers represented at the event, our staff were happy with the level of interest shown in Batchelor Institute.

Vicki Gillick, Katie Ferry and Mike Keating also volunteered their time and took a turn representing the Batchelor Institute on the stand, talking to visitors and showcasing what the Institute has to offer. Our staff were very impressed with the organisation of the event, including the endless offers of muffins, wraps, tea, coffee and water from the St Philips Hospitality students. The night was a great success overall and Batchelor Institute staff were grateful for the opportunity to engage with the community at this valuable event.
