Future’s bright for Porirua rangatahi

Porirua City Council

Te Rauparaha Arena will be bursting at the seams with college students from across Porirua on 9 May as they explore career opportunities.

The community-led Careers Expo, running from 9.30am to 5.30pm, will be the city’s largest expo in many years. There will be more than 70 stalls showcasing career and education pathways, as well as current vacancies with local employers.

Students from all of Porirua’s colleges will have the opportunity to visit the expo, with the event also open to students in the wider Wellington region, as well as those who have already left school and are still investigating their job opportunities.

There will be tech workshops and speakers from a range of Wellington tech companies.

The expo is a collaborative effort between a group of Porirua workforce partners: Porirua City Council, Ngāti Toa Rangatira, Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Education, Kāinga Ora, Le Fale Jobs and Skills Hub, Partners Porirua, and the colleges.
