Youth Info Day Can Help You Plan Your Career!

Teenagers who have thought about studying but are not sure what to do can get some direction at   a special expo for youth, run by NorthTec.

The Youth Info Day takes place on Thursday, 2 July at the Youth Space in Cafler Park, Water Street, Whangarei. Anyone interested in NorthTec’s many different study options can come along between 11am and 2pm.

The event will feature interactive stalls run by staff from the different programme areas, giving visitors the chance to find out more about the subjects available.

NorthTec’s youth programmes will have a strong presence and there will be staff from the Youth Guarantee team. Young people aged from 16 to 19 can study for free under the Youth Guarantee scheme, and receive extra support with literacy and numeracy, goal-setting and budgeting. Some may also qualify for free transport to and from classes.

Ellie Ball, Events and Promotions Coordinator, said the event will be fun and lively, as well as giving young people the chance to choose a study option and a potential career path.

There will be music, spot prizes, free food and the chance to win a pair of Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones.

Ellie said: “The Youth Info Day is aimed specially at young people and is designed to show teenagers what they can come and study at NorthTec. There will be interactive demos showing some of the things our students do and some of the great things you can get involved with.

“Whether you have a specific career in mind or don’t know what you want to do next, come on down to the Youth Space on 2 July and we can help you take your next step.”
