Year 9/10 timetabled classes for Careers and post school options 2021

NEW Program 2021....The Careers Adviser will be working with the Year 9 and 10 Year Advisers to support students in preparing and planning for future pathways. All Yr 9 and 10 classes will have a special timetabled lesson once per 2 week cycle. On some occasions the Careers Adviser will team teach with Year Advisers to upskill staff on important Careers information and other times Year Advisers will deliver lessons prepared by the Careers Adviser.This arrangement also means Year Advisers get to see all students on a regular basis to better support students in their group. This initiative replaces the previous access of students for Careers content, during religion classes.
