Our Annual Careers Week aims to raise student awareness of the careers and courses available to them in various industries.
This year, displays and activities focussed on health, hospitality, event management, tourism and fashion and were designed to include students at all Year levels.
In addition to lunchtime quizzes and activities, appealing particularly to our younger students, Year 12 enjoyed a visit from Australian Catholic University (ACU) regarding their Early Achievers Program and latest course information. Deakin International spoke to Year 11 and 12 International students, Deakin Health Faculty presented a lunchtime seminar to interested Senior School students and Year 10, 11 & 12 Product Design students went to Kangan Institute to participate in workshops around Fashion and Interior Design.
The key messages reinforced to students throughout the week were:
• Career. It’s more than just a job
• Discover who you are!
• You’re never too young to start exploring.
• Make well informed decisions.
• Keep learning. Be resilient
Careers education is an important part of our students’ overall education at the College and begins at Year 7. This ensures students are well informed about their options by the time they reach Year 12 and are ready to make decisions about further education, training and employment.
