Torrens University Australia
2020 Innovation Name: National Virtual Careers Expo
Awards: 4th Most Innovative Government, Education and Not-for-Profit Company
With COVID-19 social distancing prohibiting a careers expo for TAFE, VET, and High School leavers to attend, Torrens University adapted existing expertise to host a National Virtual Careers Expo. The expo featured 72 exhibitors including 35 Universities and offered chat rooms, live webinars, downloadable videos, campus tours and course guides in one location.
The site has had over 310,000 visitors since 7th May 2020. The demand for the platform led to the service being also successfully offered in New Zealand.
