Lithgow’s Careers Day a big success


POPULAR: CPL Rebekah Allen and LSET Lee Tough created lots of interest at the Armed Forces Recruitment stand at the Lithgow Careers Day.

Despite inclement weather, TAFE Western Lithgow College’s Careers Day on Thursday was a big success.

Lithgow College Team Leader Lynn Hewitt said she had received lots of good feedback from teachers and prospective students alike.

“All of the feedback was really positive – the day went really well,” Mrs Hewitt said. “Our trades teachers and business department reported really strong interest and the number of enrolments they received was really pleasing.

“We also had lots of interest in our other courses and the prospective students who came along reported that they enjoyed the opportunity to talk to the teachers and have access to easy and personalised enrolments.”

Mrs Hewitt said the Armed Forces Recruitment and Western Sydney University stands also created a lot of interest, with the live broadcast from Move FM and the sausage sizzle provided by Lithgow and District Volunteer Rescue Squad adding to the atmosphere.

“Overall we were really happy with the day’s proceedings,” Mrs Hewitt said. “This event was a great platform for bigger and better events in the future at Lithgow.

“We’re now planning an information day for the end of November to help graduating school students to assess their options, with an enrolment day in early 2017 for those who decide to come to TAFE.”
