Careers development is seen as an integral part of learning at the College. In Year 9 the focus is on personal attributes, skills and talents that the students bring with them. This focus enables the students to concentrate on what they do well and what they have success in. In Year 10, the students take this information and broaden it to the world of work. Resume writing, cover letters, workplace health and safety and Work Experience culminate in SET planning. The Careers Co-ordinator is available to help students access TAFE course information and a range of traineeships and apprenticeships.
Students receive information regarding post-school opportunities both in tertiary studies and in work. Work Experience is available on request. All Year 12 students are assisted in the process of application to the Queensland Tertiary Admission Centre (QTAC) and in being aware of scholarship applications. Apart from structured program, there are a number of Career days that are promoted by the College or held here at the College.
Our Careers’ room offers students access to brochures for universities, TAFE and private colleges, as well as scholarship information and job information.
Students are encouraged to explore their options of alternative pathways through their senior years of schooling. Schoolbased Traineeships and TAFE certificate courses are available to students. Students wishing to access TAFE courses or School based Traineeships are invited to make an appointment with the Careers Coordinator to discuss possible options.
