High-quality career education is vital in preparing students for their future.
Support is provided to senior students in the following ways:
- Year 10 students participate in a Careers Program to better inform their HSC subject selections. The program draws on student data to assist with the decision-making process.
- Students in Years 10 – 12 can work with our Head of Futures and Careers as well as their Mentor, Head of Year and Head of Stage when making decisions about their educational, training and occupational options post-school.
- Career articles are published in the School newsletter and contain useful hints, tips and information for students and parents.
- A dedicated careers space is available for parents and students to access digital and offline resources.
- Regular in-school career seminars with past students, professionals and academics are organised for students and their families.
- Annual Business and Industry events are dynamic opportunities for students to speak with professionals within their field of interest.
- Australian Business Week Program is an intensive learning experience for students in Year 10 to develop an enterprise mindset. Students are divided into ‘companies’ and spend the week managing a business through computer simulation for a simulated two year period. Students develop a cafe concept of their own, creating marketing collateral, developing business reports and business plans and engaging in team building. The program is both challenging and rewarding.
