Careers

The Career Centre’s mission is to furnish an environment with resources, guidance and assistance that will allow every student the opportunity to increase their understanding and appreciation for a diverse world of college and career alternatives. In the course of examination, inquiries and evaluation, our students will gain knowledge of the skills essential to developing long term educational and professional aspirations.

The school has a well stocked Careers Reference Room. Students and parents may visit the room at anytime. The Careers Adviser, Mr Taylor is involved in teaching programs in Years 9 & 10, organises the Work Experience Programs in Years 9, 10, 11 and spends a considerable amount of time advising individual students and parents.

Mr Taylor has accurate and current information about career opportunities and entry to Universities, Private Colleges, TAFE Institutes and the general workforce.
