The University of Mpumalanga was part of the three day provincial career expo which took place at Mbombela Stadium from 24 – 26 June 2015. Approximately 30 000 grade 10, 11 and 12 learners from the local high schools attended the event.

The Expo was an information session that was aimed at assisting the current grade 12 students with making their career and higher education study choices. Some of the information given at the event also included information on which offices and institutions the learners could approach for financial assistance. The event was also an opportunity for the grade 10 and 11 learners to obtain information about their future career choices and how to gain access to higher education when they reach grade 12.

This year’s Expo was officially opened by Acting Premier, Vusi Shongwe together with MEC Mhaule. Premier Shongwe requested young people seize the opportunities that government is availing to them.

The Expo resonates from the 2014 Youth Summit where the province resolved to put the youth Empowerment Agenda at the centre of its entire development endeavour. It serves as a platform to showcase opportunities that can be exploited towards the personal advancement of the youth in the province; while hoping that they grab every opportunity with both hands.
