Education & Careers

Primex, in partnership with NSW Department of Education and NSW Local Land Services, is creating the Region’s leading Education & Careers Hub, showcasing the complete primary, secondary and tertiary education opportunities and pathways, highlighting future careers throughout Australian primary industries & the entire primary production supply-chain.

Education and Innovation are strategic pillars of Primex, with the hub providing an engaging centrepiece for schools, job seekers and attendees to learn and access the critical information about our world-class food and fibre production and the opportunities to join and remain in a strong and rewarding career.

Education providers at all levels will join primary industry groups, business and experts providing solutions-based information designed to attract and retain our educators, youth and next generation as immediate action is required for skilled and passionate advocates sharing the passion in a rewarding industry.

With new and exciting life-long careers available in food and fibre right across the supply chain, the Education & Careers Hub can sow the seed and identify the opportunities of the diversity of careers ranging from work on-farm, in science, technology, business management, innovation, logistics, animal welfare, marketing and research and development across our region, nation and globe.

Primex is the ideal location to profile large interactive presentations and career options including job training and vacancies, engagement through presentations and networking amongst educators, industry and employees, while targeting our School groups and programs.

NextGen Program

With our partner Southern Cross University

Primex is committed and passionate about Australian agriculture and primary industries, supporting our rural and regional communities and showcasing the latest in innovation, education, and sustainable farming techniques and practices.

In partnership with Southern Cross University and some of our country’s most visionary and committed producer organisations, NextGen elevates the profile of the important pathways available in agriculture and primary industries.

NextGen promotes a premier range of campaigns resourced by these producer and grower organisations, creating opportunities for engagement all-year-round and highlighted during Primex.

Stakeholders supporting the NextGen program will work alongside career advisors, teachers and agricultural based government agencies to target and assist in a coordinated approach that offers;

Workshops, skills development, and support towards regional-national campaigns and competitions.

  • Innovation & Ag-Tech activities (drones, gps, precision ag equipment, apps, etc.)
  • Skills development activities including practical elements e.g., fencing, livestock & agronomy
  • Introductions to regenerative agriculture, risk & safety, national best-practices
  • Building relationships and networks through membership, industry and awarding achievement

The NextGen program is continuing to develop and grow, we therefore welcome any interested parties to join several state and national based organisations supporting this initiative to empower Australia’s Next Generation of farmers and primary industry production.
