The Careers program in year 10
All year 10 students prepare resumes, are involved in mock interviews and plan for work experience as part of acquiring knowledge about the workforce. Students also access information about themselves via computer programs such as Career Voyage, aptitude testing and the facility to conduct their own research across a spectrum of websites. Students prepare for their subject choices and course selection, in addition to an individual interview with the Careers Counsellor.
Whilst it is acknowledged that students entering into the workforce may have between 5 and 7 career shifts in their lifetime, the experience of observing and participating in the workplace is a great opportunity in year 10. Some students in years 11 and 12 also undertake work experience, in consultation with the Careers Counsellor.
Tertiary selection and preparation
The careers program also supports year 12 students in making their decisions about tertiary education and other post school options. Each year 12 student is offered an individual interview with the Careers Counsellor in term 3. Prior to this, there are seminars and opportunities for individual interviews throughout the year. The Tertiary Information Session is held at the College for all years 11 and 12 students and their parents to attend. There is also a Transition evening for year 12 students to enable them and their families to prepare for tertiary study.
Additional Career Events
These include such events as the 'Women in Science Breakfast', 'Men in Arts Breakfast' and careers and tertiary evenings provide students and their families with the opportunity to access relevant and current information.
