World of Work on Wheels (WOWOW Tours)

The World of Work on Wheels (WOWOW Tours) Team will once again be  travelling across Victoria to bring Career Education activities to students in years 9 and 10 in Victorian government schools in rural and regional areas and metropolitan areas.

 

This year’s WOWOW Tours program and activities will be focused on Exploring Work Futures through VET and the six growth industries:

 

 

Medical Technology and Pharmaceuticals

Transport and Defence Technology

Food and Fibre

New Energy Technology

Construction Technology

International Education and

Professional Services

A fun and interactive exploration of VET pathways linked to future growth industries. Students participate in over 60 minutes of career activities showcasing NAO the humanoid robot, Samsung Gear VR glasses and a Virtual Expo of pathway information. Activities are conducted onsite at a local secondary school or local community venue. Parents and teachers can also participate in an after school program.

 

 

 

 

 

World of Work on Wheels (WOWOW) Tours are run by CEAV staff, and will allow students to explore work futures in growth industries in a hands-on way to gain a better understanding of the careers and VET pathways that are open to them. The WOWOW tours will be stopping at 8 rural and regional locations, and 9 metropolitan locations across Victoria.

 When does this happen?

Tours commence in Term 2 and finish in Term 4, 2017, and will stop for three to four days in each location.

What’s involved?

Schools will need to register to attend a WOWOW Tour near them. 

The CEAV will travel to host venue location/s and students will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual careers expo with a focus on VET pathways. The virtual expo will use myfuture and the Victorian Skills Gateway websites to provide students with access to an interactive platform which aims to increase their knowledge about growth industries and opportunities for future training and employment. Teaching and learning notes mapped to the Victorian Curriculum at levels 9 and 10 will be provided to all schools engaging with the WOWOW tours.

To support the virtual expo, students will have access to NAO the humanoid robot, to learn about coding, and Samsung Gear VR headsets to explore the future of work in the six growth industries
