This evening provides an opportunity for parents, students, as well as members of the public to meet and discuss courses and employment with providers. 
All secondary schools within the region (Marlborough Boys’ College, Marlborough Girls’ College, Queen Charlotte College and Rai Valley Area School) are invited to attend. 
It is timed perfectly for subject selection of Years 11 and 12 students so they can get advice about what subjects to choose for a career or tertiary course in the future.

Fantastic Futures, Nelson
For many students nearing the pointy end of their time at college, deciding what career path they should follow starts to occupy their thoughts as much as their chosen occupation will one day.

Not everyone is destined for university.

Fortunately, a region like Nelson Tasman is well placed to offer students’ fantastic future career options -inFrastructure, Farming, Fishing, Food, Forestry, Fruit & Fun (tourism).

To help them work out exactly which sector resonates with their interests and skills, a micro-expo has been organised. 

Fantastic Futures is an exclusive opportunity for selected Year 11 & 12 students to spend a day getting the skinny from key staff representing F-industry innovators who are looking for new
employees ready to start in a career they’re going to love.

Run by Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce, CATE, MOE & the Nelson Regional Development Agency.
