Try A Trade is a free event organised by MMVLLEN and Maribyrnong Youth Services. It is is a fun and interactive way for students to explore the world of trades.  We take into account skill shortage areas and a majority of the Exhibitors are local TAFE and Training providers.  Each stall holder provides an interactive activity that young people participate in to learn many workplace skills.


This presents as a great excursion opportunity for Year 9, Year 10 and, Year 11 and 12 VCAL or any other students who may be interested in pursuing a trade or including VET in their studies.

There are 3 session times to choose from that run between 9.15am and 3pm.  Please note that we have a great variation of trades to explore that appeal to both male and females.  Each school typically brings along a group of 50 students (negotiable).


It will be a great opportunity to provide prospective students with information on your VET or TAFE courses and your pre-apprenticeships.  We hope that you will join us in making this a worthwhile and rewarding experience for young people in our local community.  We do not charge exhibitors to have a stall.  We simply want to link young people and their support teachers to relveant local opportunities.
