Event description
This event is an opportunity to learn more about our regional economy, our growth industries and opportunities to upskill and reskill.

About this Event

Education representatives from the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury will be providing information on opportunities to upskill or reskill into future growth industries – health tech; food, fibre & agritech; aerospace, future transport & manufacturing; and professional services.

There will be seminar sessions both in the middle of the day and late afternoon where you can learn more about our economy and careers in our growth sectors from industry insiders, and the study options to transition into those areas. There is also a session on Startup support if you are thinking about starting a business. In the expo area you can talk with education representatives from each of our tertiary providers on education programmes relating to the growth sectors, and industry body representatives to find out more about careers in these fields.

You can join one or all of the seminars and then talk to representatives in the expo area, or just come along any time to the expo area.
