Business as Usual!

Following the pandemic-laden year in 2020 and 2021, career and transition information is more important than ever. We aim to continue bringing together the best of post-school education and transition options and information all in the one location providing seamless access to students to various universities, private colleges, gap year options, apprenticeship, traineeship and employment information.

For exhibitors, this provides a unique opportunity to engage with secondary schools across the Northern Beaches and Northern Sydney region in a professional and coordinated setting that is COVID-safe.

As an exhibitor, your presence allows for direct communication with prospective students to assist them to navigate the choices and options for their future.

This long-running transition Expo has been regionally operating for over 20 years, attracting a broad and diverse range of local, state and interstate exhibitors including leading education and training providers.

The event connects young people in senior years of high school to education/training providers, employment services, employers, apprenticeship/traineeship services, disability providers, government services, and other support services to help them make informed decisions about their future.

The Business Education Network (BEN) now known as Youth Up Front is a youth-centred registered charitable organisation servicing the Northern Beaches and Northern suburbs of Sydney. Operating since 1993, we manage a range of programmes, which connect young people with business, education and community.
