Career Education Program

The career education program commences formally in Year 10, where students are introduced to career options, goal setting, pathways, resume preparation and job interview training.  There is also a particular focus on helping students make informed subject choices regarding their career pathways in Year 11 and 12.

Work experience

Year 10 students undertake a compulsory block week of work experience in Term 3 which coincides with SET planning, career expos and information sessions.  Work Experience forms an increasingly important part of the educational process for all students.  Placements between businesses and industry provide invaluable insights into the world of work and helps students develop the skills and qualities they will need for a successful transition into working life.   It can be highly motivational for students as they begin to develop a better idea of what working is really about.

All Senior students are encouraged to undertake work experience during school holidays.  Special allowance and flexibility for work experience can be given during the school term and is organised on an individual basis.

Careers Website

Comprehensive information is available on the St Catherine's careers website as well as many activities for students to do and resources to assist with career and further education decision making.
