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
