7 ISSUE 19 | September 2009 This year marks IASUs debut at the Tennant Creek Careers Expo held on Wednesday 12 August 2009. For the first time, Indigenous Academic Support Lecturer, Chris Rothery was able to promote the IASU on a wide scale to the town by putting on a joint display with Charles Darwin University at the Careers Expo. The display attracted considerable attention by both the general public and school students in particular. Over one hundred high school students participated in a range of activities at the display which encouraged them to find out what CDU and IASU could offer Indigenous students who were seeking to further their studies after leaving school. Those members of the community who had long since left school also showed interest in finding out what CDU and IASU could do to help them further their employment prospects. As a first joint presentation at the Careers Expo we are happy with the feedback we have received and look forward to presenting an even more innovative program next year.
