2022 Graduates – Where are they now?

Our 2022 year 12 graduates rose to the challenges & were very successful in their post high school endeavours. Many VCE students decided to continue their studies at University or TAFE. VCAL students entered into apprenticeships/work and others deciding to continue their studies as well.

Out of 141 students, 120 students completed VCE & 21 students completed VCAL. 106 students applied for further study via the VTAC process, with a further 9 students completing direct applications to institutes and 26 students gaining apprenticeships or full time work. University placements were 63% & TAFE placements 37%

RMIT & Latrobe Universities were once again popular destinations, with students studying in a range of areas, such as Health, Law, Education, Bio Medicine/Science & Building. Four students were offered places at Melbourne University for Biomedicine & Science and two at Monash, also for Biomedicine & Science. We wish them all well in their future endeavours!

Year 10 Work Experience 

The College’s work experience program runs from Tuesday 13th June until Friday 16th June 2023.  Work experience is part of the educational program of the College that is designed to give students insights into the industry and the workplace in which they are located. Work experience has enormous benefits for students as it gives them a chance to:

  • Work alongside adults as part of a team gaining an understanding of work.
  • Develop and practice a range of new skills.
  • Become more independent and confident.
  • Relate the school curriculum to the workplace.
  • Increase motivation to continue their study and/or undertake further training.
  • Explore career options.

Students are placed with employers primarily to observe and learn – not to undertake activities which require extensive training or expertise. Your child will not be able to do hands on work, but can complete simple tasks after proper induction and always under supervision. The days will be longer than a regular school day.  A member of teaching staff will visit your child during his or her placement to speak with them and their supervisor about their progress while on work experience.

Please work with your child and encourage them to arrange their placement prior to the start of Term 2.  Students have been given the required forms for employers and families to complete. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with Ms Williams.

Career Planning and Job Seeker Program

The team at My Career Match have developed a free program for high school students that is broken into five key categories:

  1. Career planning
  2. Promoting yourself
  3. Getting a job
  4. Personal development
  5. Mind, body & soul

Students can choose which categories and lessons they would like to work through.

The Careers Newsletter is produced every 4 weeks, the first was messaged via SEQTA to all Year 10, 11 and 12 students last week. Please ask your child to have a read of it with them.  There is alot of information from universities, upcoming events, apprenticeship options etc.
