Careers

Ųʹٷ's Careers Program is proactive and reactive in its approach. Individual student's needs are considered and every endeavour is made to assist our students, especially the seniors, in their transition from school to work and further education.

Studentsare offeredmany opportunitiesto visit various educational institutions, university, TAFE (technical and further education) and private colleges to participate in lectures, workshops andseminars to find out moreabout their particular area of interest.

Successful and informative excursions include visits to University of Technology for careers in nursing and health, business, IT and engineering and a visit to Sydney university to explore ‘life at uni' and explore course options.

The school to work (STW) program runs in conjunction with the careers program.

This year we have had more than200 students benefit from various opportunities provided through STW. Students from Years 7 to 12 attended excursions involving hands-on-activities and interactive workshops at Macquarie University and the University of Technology.

We now have established solid links with these universities and will expand the program in 2013.

Our goal is to enhance our students' knowledge and understanding of the careers and course opportunities available to them upon leaving school.

Year 9 students have also completed the STW online pathways survey which also assists in their career and transition planning.
