Our Careers Program supports students to better understand their career options and pathways in the traditional sense, while also emphasising that their future as young adults will involve a ‘career journey’ rather than a destination. That life, careers, study, and employment opportunities can change, and that’s OK!

In addition to assistance with subject selection in Years 9 to 11, our Careers Program includes:

  • participation in Morrisby Careers Testing in Year 9, where students engage in psychometric assessments and questionnaires, as well as advice about careers and subjects that match their abilities and interests.
  • a visit to the annual Melbourne Careers Expo, mock job interviews with local businesses, and work experience in Year 10.
  • support with applications to TAFE, University, and independent tertiary providers for Year 12 students.

We also provide Learning Diversity, VET and VCE-VM support, Careers Week activities and an onsite Mater Christi Subject and Tertiary Expo.
