Careers in Education Expo Event

Hear from real Victorian teachers about rewarding careers in education.

On Wednesday 13 January 2021, the Department of Education and Training is hosting the Careers in Education Expo, providing people the chance to hear from real Victorian teachers and other education experts.

This virtual event will be an opportunity for people who may be considering a career in education to ask any questions they may have about pathways into the industry and what it's like to teach here in Victoria.

Recent school graduates who have received their ATAR results and are wondering about future career pathways and people who are interested in making a career change are also encouraged to attend and learn more about teaching in Victoria.
