Careers and University Advice
Come and see our team of fully qualified Careers Advisors in N-Block - the red carpet connects us to other members of the Student Wellbeing team.
We can help you to take the steps in the future directions that interest you. When helping a young person in your care to consider their career, we suggest that they consider their interests, abilities and values. Success is found most often when you do something you like and are good at, so why not pursue all the options?
We can help lead you to information that you might not even know exists and the more information you seek out early on, the better prepared you will be for what lies ahead.
Come to us for: Work Experience, excursions to Career Markets, guest speakers and lectures, access to external courses, School-Based Apprenticeships (ASBAs), assistance with job seeking and employability skills. We also help with applications to CIT, university through UAC, VTAC, QTAC etc, as well as scholarships, and more.
With two Moving Forward officers to help you transition into year 11 and out of year 12, as well as a Careers advisor, there is someone who can work with you, one-on-one, to explore the options that are out there.
Student Pathways Planning
We work with students, families and pastoral care teachers to individually help with Pathways Planning.
Careers & University advice
We offer a range of services to assist you with career planning. The Careers team are available to students during school hours and appointments can be made to discuss options.
August 2018: The Careers Team recently ran UAC information sessions for Year 12 students who are intending on applying for university and also for parents and carers. These sessions were aimed at assisting students in their university applications through UAC. Click below for more information:
Work Experience is a great way to explore career paths and to find out what is involved in an occupation. This is especially true if you are unsure about the type of work you would like to do when you leave college. Work Experience often leads to further employment opportunities, including part time work.
You can spend one week (minimum of 30 hours) in a work place. Each Work Experience placement can count towards your Year 12 Certificate and you can participate in several placements while at college. To find out more about Work Experience visit the Work Experience Coordinator - in the Careers Centre.
