Central Murray Careers Network

The Central Murray Careers Network is made up of Careers Teachers and staff from secondary schools across the region as well as training organisations and service providers.

The aim of the group is to share information, network and hear from guest speakers with relevant and interesting information. One of the key events for the network to be involved in is the Central Murray Careers Expo which was held at the Swan Hill Grain Shed in 2018.

The event, organised by the Murray Mallee Local Learning and Employment Network (MMLLEN) attracted over 500 students from eight secondary schools across the region.

“What a great first expo. This will be an invaluable event for our students,” VET and Pathways Coordinator at St Mary MacKillop College Laura Crow said.

“Love to have this run every year,” Applied Learning Manager, Careers, VET and VCAL at Swan Hill College Corey Frost said.

“Students loved the day and found it a really positive experience,” Tooleybuc Central High School Careers Advisor Kim Morton said.

The event included seminars throughout the day from Deakin University, SuniTAFE, Racing Victoria, MAS National and Young Workers Centre, giving the students more in-depth information about careers and training.

Universities, TAFEs, tertiary providers and local industry were represented at the 36 stands providing students with an opportunity to discuss career pathways, tertiary education and local opportunities.
