Year 12 Students

We have completed our Careers lessons during Year 12 Life Skills classes.  Students have been shown the Careers timeline for 2024 / 2025, revisited the myfuture website and learned to use the VTAC Course Search function to assist them with their course and career research.  These classes were designed to encourage students to have career and course conversations with parents, teachers, friends and relatives, to undertake their course and career research and to assist them with their planning for life post Aitken.
