Students need to make informed and appropriate career decisions in a society that is facing rapid technological, economic and social change.
Our career education programmes encourage students to reflect on the demands of today's workplace and develop the skills to cope and thrive in a competitive environment.
Students are also taught how to develop a career plan but also how to be flexible, responsive to change, take risks and pursue alternatives when facing setbacks. Students need to increasingly adapt to changing circumstances and opportunities.
The sequential career programme is:
- Year 9: Knowing yourself
- Year 10: The world of work
- Year 11: Finding a part-time job
- Year 12: Post school opportunities
- Year 13: The world beyond
Students also participate in a range of career events to be more informed about opportunities:
- Liaison Visits
- Open Days
- Career days
Students and families can also access individual career guidance. Students can use a variety of career computer tools to explore and clarify options as well as access a range of careers information from the Careers NZ website.
