Careers – Transition Expo for Student with Disability
The Future Choices Transition Expo is the only one of its kind in the greater region of Newcastle and the Central Coast.

Whilst there are other disability expos, there are none that focus in on the move from school to further education, training and employment. Transitioning from school to the next stage of your life when you are living with disability often comes with unique challenges and sometimes unexpected opportunities. The Hunter and Central Coast Future Choices Expos attract over 120 exhibitors with a focus on connecting young people living with disability to employment services, employers, education providers, disability providers and government services to help them make informed decisions about their future and the support available in the move to adult life.

Presented by Career Links, the events are also run in conjunction with the National Disability Coordination Officer Program and the NSW Department of Education Support Teachers. Operating since the year 2000, the event is a critical information resource and important date on the calendar for school leavers and their parents or carers who face the day-to-day challenges of living with a disability and are seeking to explore opportunities and pathways open to them.

“Each year the event attracts approximately 1,500 students,” said Career Links CEO, John Purcell. “Some attend with a school group, others come with their parents or their carers. It’s open to tertiary graduates as well and is free to attend.”

The events attract exhibitors from a range of organisations including:

*Disability Service Providers


*TAFE Colleges

*Registered Training Providers

*Group Training Companies

*Youth Support Services

*Career Services


*Employment Services

*Supported Employment

*Apprenticeship Centres
