CAREERS AND PATHWAYS SUPPORT

All students in Years 10 and 11 have individual interviews with a member of the Pathways Team to ensure they are on track for a successful outcome and to ensure they are aware of their pathways and careers options beyond leaving secondary education.

Year 12 students have a more in-depth individual interview with the Careers Advisor to discuss options for Higher Education, Traineeship/Apprenticeship or employment opportunities upon completion of their secondary education.

Students and parents are encouraged to make an appointment with the Pathways Team to discuss issues including:

  • Which courses to apply for when finished secondary college
  • Thinking about leaving school but unsure of pathways
  • Pathways through the senior school – what are they?
  • Need help with direction for the future

If you would like to make an appointment with a member of the Pathways Team please contact Derry Caulfield at the college on 03 5987 2805 Ext: 153 or email: caulfield.derry.dc@edumail.vic.gov.au
