CAREERS & PATHWAYS

The Careers and Pathways team are here to help you plan for life beyond school. We work with students to:

  • Make informed choices when choosing your subjects for the following year to ensure they suit your preferred pathway and interests.
  • Select appropriate programs when transitioning from year 10 into either VCE or VCAL
  • Make application to Universities and TAFE institutions

In order to achieve this, throughout the year we

  • Have one-on-one discussions to assist you in determining what you would like to do when you finish and present various options.
  • Provide post-graduation assistance with job seeking, transferring universities, enrolment in courses and general advice
  • Create learning resources and activities delivered during our college's Tarneit Time to help prepare our students to become work ready.

A number of events are organised throughout the year to help you grow as both an individual and equip you with knowledge of the endless possibilities.

  • Annual Careers Expo whereby hundreds of individuals from a range of professions come into the school to share their experiences, pathways and advice for pursuing a range of vocations. This is also complemented by the attendance of all major tertiary institutions.
  • Various university visits to provide you with a first hand experience of campus life, including meeting current students
  • Various excursions to participate within our broader community and engage in opportunities connected to developing your knowledge and exposure to life beyond school.
  • Work experience. An opportunity for our year 10s to engage in one week of experience at a workplace or in an industry in which they show an interest. This gives them the ability to see the daily tasks undertaken by a particular profession and the key skills needed.

There is a vast array of websites that are very useful.
