Careers and Employment Expo @ Adelaide Showgrounds

Held annually in May, the Adelaide Showgrounds once again buzzed with excitement as it hosted this free event. As part of a series run across Australia it attracted a diverse crowd of students, parents, graduates, job seekers, and career changers all eager to gather information and advice on their future career paths.

Participating in expos and career days is crucial for HITsa – these events help us stay abreast of industry trends, ensuring that the training we provide remains relevant and up-to-date. Engaging with employers who are the true experts in their fields allows us to develop the most effective training resources for our students. These interactions also enable us to explore various industry pathways, assisting us in recommending the best training courses for prospective students.

The expo provided a fantastic opportunity to connect with a variety of employers and service providers. It was an ideal platform for introducing HITsa Training and Employment to a wider audience and networking with industry peers. The representation across fields such as aged care, disability services, childcare, hospitality and retail was exceptional.

Involvement in community expos offer invaluable opportunities to meet potential students face-to-face. Direct interaction at these events is the best way to connect with and support future students, helping them navigate their educational and career journeys.

Empowering Future Health and Care Professionals

In March, Local Jobs program Can Care was launched in Salisbury, marking a significant milestone in local job creation and career development. This innovative program provided participants with a valuable preview of careers in the health and caring industries, enabling them to connect with employers and industry experts while accessing numerous employment opportunities.

Looking ahead, Can Care will roll out in Mount Barker in July and continue to operate across Adelaide’s North and South until June 2025. This program offers an exceptional opportunity to gain new skills, connect with reputable employers and make new friends along the way.

Building on the success of the Salisbury launch, the program was rolled out in April at our Clarence Gardens site in the South. The participants demonstrated a keen enthusiasm for understanding the care field. They particularly appreciated the practical sessions, which introduced them to essential equipment used in care settings and unique skill-building activities, such as shaving a balloon to meet personal support needs. Here they are in action:

Who Can Benefit from Can Care?

This program is ideal for:

  • those returning to the workforce
  • early school leavers
  • entry-level careers into the care sector
  • those seeking a career change for greater personal satisfaction and a sense of helping others
  • people with a caring nature

Can Care takes off at HITsa Salisbury

The first Can Care local jobs program rolled out at Salisbury in March. Training is a mixture of accredited and non accredited training focusing on the Care, Health and Cleaning sector.

On day 1 students were introduced to employment consultants from Anglicare and Australian Careers Association, who shared interesting aspects of working in the industry such as the diversity of jobs opportunities that are currently available.

Students had opportunity to chat with these employers and it was great to see all students take this opportunity to learn more about what it takes to work in a caring role.

Can Care students will graduate early April and will reconnect with these employers for possible employment outcomes.

Students have expressed interest in continuing their training to complete the qualification CHC32015 Certificate III in Community Services, They would not have considered this had they not gained awareness of the industry through Can Care.

HITsa is running Can Care programs through to June 2025. If you would like more information or to register your client, please call Jodie on 8375 2826 or email: [email protected]
