Students have open access to all TAFE and university course guides, VET information, Job Guides, information about getting a job and specific vocational advice. The Careers Library is located within the Careers Office, Room ZC207 within the Zammit Centre.
The Careers Team meets with all Senior Students, to develop pathways plans for the future. This process involves identification of students’ interests and abilities; planning for Year 11 and 12 programs; organising for the transition from school to further training, education or work; and tertiary applications.
Careers News is a fortnightly newsletter that can be accessed via Zenith. Careers News is the easiest way to stay informed about specific careers information pertinent to students; as well as gain details about a range of careers events occurring throughout the year.
The VCE and Career Expo is held annually. This is an important event for current Year 10 and 11 students and parents to attend to assist in planning for subject selection and post school options. Students will receive detailed information on VCE subject areas and options for Years 11 and 12. Representatives from selected TAFE, universities and private colleges will provide information and advice about post-secondary options for all Senior Years students.
The Pathways Program forms an integral part of the development process for Year 9 students. Throughout their Pathways week, students will participate in a series of careers orientated classes which include vocational testing, identification of potential future pathways, recognition of prerequisites in subject selection; as well as visits to a range of tertiary institutions and workplaces.
Work Experience provides students with a first-hand opportunity to experience a workplace of interest and to participate in the broader ‘world of work’. Work Experience alternates with Year 10 camp and will be undertaken either at the end of Term 1 or 3.
