Careers

Year 10

The Year 10 Careers Program is designed to assist students to plan their pathway into VCE and beyond. This comprises of the Mock Job Interview program in partnership with Richmond Rotary Club and the Careers Fast Track (CFT) program.
This latter program identifies each student’s preferred learning style and concludes with an individual appointment with an external careers adviser. Parents are very welcome to attend this counselling session.

Work experience is a major thread over the whole year with a week in late November/early December concluding the Year 10 program.

VET
