School to Work Pathways

When speaking with our student cohort, a key message I reinforce is that career pathways are not always linear. There are so many ways for students to achieve their career goals. There is great learning in taking a ‘detour’ — sometimes we will not know what we will like, or dislike, until we try it.   

To highlight these different pathway options, MyFuture has created a series of infographics that focus on particular careers and the unique journeys that individuals have taken to secure employment.  

Over the next month, I will share some of these infographics to help students and parents/guardians visualise the various pathways they can take from school to work. The infographics draw on Australian census data and information from professional career practitioners. 

Please note that these infographics should be used only as a guide. If you or your child have any specific questions regarding career and course pathway options, I would encourage you to make some time to meet with me.

Australian Jobs (2021 edition) 

The Australian Jobs document will step you through all aspects of the labour market. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the labour market and there is now more competition for jobs. To ensure our students make informed career pathway decisions, I encourage them to review this handy and up-to-date resource from the National Skills Commission to identify where the jobs will be in the future.

Congratulations Year 12s!

Finally, I wanted to congratulate our Year 12 cohort for successfully submitting timely VTAC applications by 30th September. A huge amount of work goes into preparing the required evidence and statements to support those applications. Our Year 12s should be commended for navigating this complex process while also managing remote learning. Well done! 

As welcome news, a number of our students have received early offers for 2022 tertiary courses. This is a wonderful achievement for these students and certainly alleviates some anxiety as we move towards the exam period. 

Congratulations to all students.
