Teacher's Prospects edition
Sixty Career Advisers from high schools across the State were recently invited to spend a sunny mid-winter's day on campus to learn about various aspects of student life at UWA for our 2014 Career Advisers Day.
As well as attending presentations covering topics such as Assured-entry Pathways, graduate outcomes and the UWA Handbooks, the Career Advisers took part in their choice of practical Faculty-based activities. Among these were a simulated toxic waste spill challenge (Population Health, pictured); separating coloured dyes in lollies (Chemistry); and using simple materials to implement water solutions with the Engineers Without Borders outreach team.
A mini-expo available during refreshment breaks also provided a valuable opportunity for attendees to speak directly with Faculty representatives. Judging by the post-event feedback, attendees were well-informed, well-fed and enjoyed the opportunity to learn about UWA from the perspective of current students as well as staff.
To ensure you don't miss out on next year's Career Advisers Day, keep a look out for 'Save the Date' info in the coming months.
