Careers and Training

You’re often asked to start considering what you would like to do once you graduate early on in your Secondary schooling. Do you go to university, or TAFE? Start an apprenticeship, or go straight into a job? Or do you take that gap year to consider your options? How do you figure out what God’s plan for your life really is?

Fortunately, there are plenty of options these days to assist you in achieving your goals, and many of them start with some smart decision making while you’re still at school. Take the time to make some enquiries, ask your parents to go along with you to an open day or two, and prayerfully consider your choices. Find out exactly what the entry requirements are for the tertiary courses you’re interested in, and take your aptitudes, strengths, and weaknesses into account.

To be academically successful in Year 11 and 12, you’ll need the motivation to commit regular time to homework and studying. Just as Paul explained the Christian life to the Corinthians as a race that needed perseverance and discipline to win, you’ll need to apply these same principles to your learning if you want to achieve your personal best. Setting achievable goals and deciding how much time you’re going to allow for school work, and how much for other interests is vital. If you need some pointers on creating a study schedule, just ask.

And don’t forget, Mr Stirling, Mrs Drennan (the College’s Career and Vocational Coordinator), your Director of Students, and Form teachers – they’re always willing to help you work through any study, careers, or training questions you may have.

From open days to information sessions and more, there are plenty of ways to find out more about your preferred courses and career pathways. Our Careers Diary brings together the available information from WA’s universities and tertiary institutions in one place to make easier for students and parents to plan ahead.
