The Skills and Thrills Digital Careers Showcase is a unique and engaging careers video available to students in years 7-12 in the region.

The video educates students about the diversity and opportunity that vocational pathways offer, particularly important with COVID-19 causing impact to so many industries state and nationwide.
Created by SkillsOne and supported by the NSW Government, the freely available 35-minute video combines music, animation and video to convey valuable career information on industry trends, apprenticeships, traineeships, school based apprenticeships and traineeships (SBATs).
There is also a variety of need to know information on training providers and fee help subsidies.
Prominently highlighted is information on industry trends and jobs of the future with a focus on local, regional and national career opportunities.
Students will hear from Training Service NSW representatives and NSW Training Awards Ambassadors, giving local information from those who live and work in the region.
The video content will assist students to connect their passion to a career pathway, highlight the breath of opportunities available through vocational education and training and connect students with local resources to enable them to make informed and supported career choices.
SkillsOne CEO Brian Wexham said the showcase was created to excite young students to consider careers outside of those they may be familiar with.
“By using video content, we can showcase a range of personal stories from other young people who have chosen and are excelling in vocational careers,” he said.
“The unique delivery model is fun, engaging, and informative.”
Schools in and around the Central Coast have also been provided with access and have been encouraged to use the video in their career’s classes.
Parents of high school aged children will also find the information helpful and are encouraged to watch it and create conversations surrounding career options with their children.
