"Preparing students to self-manage their career development life journey"
St Catherine’s Catholic College acknowledges that “Career education encompasses the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes through a planned program of learning experiences in education and training settings that will assist students to make informed decisions about their study and/or work options and enable them to participate effectively in working life and that Career education should be: intentional, developmental, comprehensive and available to all students.”
