Year 10 Pathways and SET Planning:

Throughout the year there are opportunities for students to further grow their knowledge of careers and develop their employment related skills through our Career Education program.  This program supports students as they transition into senior studies and allows them to explore the many career options they have availale to them. 

In year 9 Students and families will engage in PPP Meetings, where the goals and pathway options for each student are discussed with a member of the leadership team, and a personalised plan is created for the student and subjects for year 10 are selected. 

In Year 10 students in Term 2 and Term 3 will engage in SET (Senior Education and Training) Planning, an individual learning plan of action to achieve success in Year 11 and Year 12. This will be a review of what is completed in the abovementioned PPP Meetings. Students will build on their learnings in Year 9 and continue to explore the changing world of work and will engage in examining their options across education, training and employment sectors based on their interests, personal qualities, abilities and ambitions.  Students and families will be guided through the SET process by discussions with the Leadership team, along with external supports from Universities, TAFE and private providers.
