Careers and Transition 2020

What’s Happening in Careers?

Year 11

The Year 11 program will commence on Wednesday, February 26. The boys will spend the session with their Careers teacher and set up their OneNotes for the course as well as begin looking at how their skills and values may lead them to particular careers.


Year 12

The Year 12 students had their first session on Wednesday 5 February. They have revisited their Career Pathway planning goals from last year and conducted some further research into their post school options and what they need to achieve at Mazenod to ensure their success.

In their next session, we have four speakers coming in to the School. The students have been sent an email to select the two presentations that are most useful to them at this point. Our speakers are:

  • Chloe Giblett - Apprenticeship Support Australia
  • Notre Dame University 
  • Curtin University
  • David Fienberg - Managing Director of the Lupin Co.

Parents and students (Years 10-12) should note that there has been an adjustment to the Careers and Transition Team for 2020.  Please refer to the diagram to determine who you or your son should speak to regarding careers issues.  All Year 11 and 12 students will be engaged in one career lesson per cycle facilitated by one member of the careers team.  Parents will be advised of some of the career activities via future newsletters.
