Careers and Pathways
The College Careers Office (located in the Jericho Centre) incorporates a range of resources and information relating to careers and pathways. Careers staff located in this area can assist with careers, pathways, school programs, subject choices and vocational learning information.
Students at all levels are encouraged to consider careers and pathways options. Today, these options are numerous and dynamic in nature and as such, students are likely to require ongoing support and guidance to enable informed and adaptable decision making.

As students consider their subject choices, senior and post-secondary school options, more specific career activities, investigation, conversations and decision-making commence. Year 9 and 10 students can expect to have some exposure to careers, pathways, subject decision making, job seeking and work-related content via Careers Days and scheduled year level sessions are provided. Most students will also have the opportunity to participate in careers-based events, excursions, extra-curricular activities and compulsory programs, like Work Experience or Structured Workplace Learning. Where appropriate, Careers and Pathways is also integrated into some studies.
