Our Job, Skills and Pathways program helps students explore the options before them and identify
the particular passions and interests that they wish to pursue.
Year 9 Careers Advisory Service
All Year 9 students are given access to the online career discovery tool, the Morrisby Test. Following the analysis of their Morrisby career assessment, students receive one-on-one careers counselling with an external accredited career development practitioner.
Year 10 Work Experience
Work experience forms an integral part of the career development process. Our Year 10 students take part in a work experience program that is designed to provide insights into industries and workplaces that students may be interested in pursuing post school. Work experience also helps students gain an understanding of the work environment and employer expectations, as well as providing increased self-understanding, independence, and self-confidence. Students partake in work experience in Terms 2 and 3.
