Year 10 Speed Career Workshop

On Tuesday, 9 November our Year 10 students were privileged to meet a variety of industry professionals for a Speed Careering Workshop. The event aimed to involve a range of people with different careers coming together to speak to groups of young people about their industry space, their journey and what their day-to-day work life consisted of.  The speed networking aimed to accelerate information through facilitated introductions and conversations – at speed! 

Students were fortunate to engage with Karratha local industry professionals such as –

  • Rio Tinto – Rail, Administrations, Environmental Science, Mechanical and Electrical areas
  • Westug
  • Realmark Estate Agency
  • 6 Star Group
  • Defence Force of Australia – Pilbara Regiment
  • Karratha Police
  • Woodside – apprentice
  • Apprenticeship Support Australia
  • Kmart
  • Subway
  • City of Karratha – Youth Services, Business Engagement, and Environmental Health Services
  • Dr Coert Kruger from Karratha Health Campus

The students responded very well to all our visitors and asked an enormous number of questions relating to each person’s specific area of expertise.

We thank each of the industry professionals for giving up their valuable time to support our Year 10 students, and for giving them an insight into their chosen career.
