Uni Hub Spencer Gulf's upcoming Port Pirie Open Day will be a ‘one stop shop’ for people in the community looking for information about local university study and career options.
Uni Hub’s university partners CQUniversity, Flinders University and the University of Adelaide will be on hand to speak about university pathways and degrees, while several local employers will provide information about graduate opportunities in the region.
Uni Hub Chief Executive Officer Anita Crisp said the Open Day was ideal for people thinking about university, but not sure where to start.
“People can come in and have a look at the study centre facilities and find out about local options for university study and career development across a range of professional and technical fields.”
“Whether you’re in Year 11 or 12, a recent school leaver or already in the workforce and looking to upskill or even change careers, the Open Day can give you more information and help take the next step,” she said.
“You can talk directly with our partner universities and learn more about degrees that might be of interest and also find out from local employers where the future demand is for skilled workers in the region,” she said.
“Of course, there will also be plenty of information about how Uni Hub can support people throughout their university journey – from enrolment through to graduation.”
“We’re really proud of the strong partnerships we have with local industry sectors and our partner universities to offer qualifications that will help ‘grow our own’ skilled workforce, right here in our own community.”
Uni Hub’s Port Pirie Open Day will be held on Monday, 14 September, from noon to 7pm. Information sessions and site tours will be held at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm. Bookings available from Eventbrite.
