On Thursday 2nd September TAFE Gippsland will conduct a session for all Year 12 students to consider pathways and courses for 2022. The session is designed to support both VCAL and VCE students' career choices beyond secondary school.
On Monday 30th August we have 25 Year 12 students taking the Responsible Serving of Alcohol course. This is a great opportunity to increase their qualifications.
Due to recent lockdown restrictions, our Group 2 HUMS students will now complete their work experience placement during the week of Monday 11th October to Friday 15th October at the start of term 4. It is important that our Year 10 students engage during this week giving them a chance to discover the world of work and learn new employability skills. Students have been given the relevant paperwork and are asked to seek a work experience placement for the above dates. Careers staff and the HUMS teachers will support students through this process.
The experience provides students with a valuable opportunity to develop employment skills, explore possible career options, understand employer expectations and increase their self-understanding, maturity, independence and self-confidence.
Please encourage your child to look for a work experience placement.
