At Emmaus our students have the opportunity to speak to our experienced Careers Adviser. It is here that students will find and gather information about Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training as well as work opportunities.
Specific programs are developed to assist students with variety of post school options, such as the Western Sydney Careers Expo, Western Sydney University Fast Forward Program, the ACU Step Up Into Teaching and Uni Step Up – Health Science. Tailored Work Experience Programs are developed to meet the needs of individual students.
Services provided by the Careers Adviser include:
- one-to-one interviews
- small group discussions
- resume writing, job seeking and interview skills
- student directed online careers investigation
- support with the UAC process
- University scholarship applications
- University alternative entry schemes
- preparation for Apprenticeships and Traineeships
- Vocational Education and Training applications and employment applications
- HSC subject selections
Students are encouraged to meet with the Careers Adviser to discuss their many post school options and preparation for a successful contribution to the world of work.
There are so many options available for students to explore and develop their career. For students who would prefer a change from full-time study there is a range of excellent pathways available including an Australian Apprenticeship, voluntary work or starting your own business.
Sometimes students have no idea where to begin and which career path is the most appropriate for them. Researching a career takes time and patience.
As a student finishing Year 12, you may have a career path in mind but may be unsure of which direction you want to take or how to achieve you goal. Whichever option you choose, the Careers Adviser at Emmaus Catholic College will help you find the information you need to start this new stage of your life.
As you explore your choices, it is a good idea to talk with your Careers Adviser, VET co-ordinator, teachers, parents or friends about what you are interested in doing with your life.
To stay abreast of important careers information and opportunities check for regular updates on our News and Calendar of Events pages.
