At Emanuel School learning about careers is an important step in the lifelong learning process and profile of every student.
Career exploration, progression and transition are cornerstones of the careers program for the senior years. Our careers advisor offers one-on-one consultations to inform students about possible careers and tertiary study so that they leave school ready to take on the world and find a fulfilling and varied career.
The careers program begins in Year 10 when students undertake career tests, thereby embarking on the personal career exploration process. Students subsequently have group sessions with our careers advisor, who mentors them through the subject selection process in line with their personal interests and career strengths. The careers advisor organises a guest speaker program showcasing all of the main Sydney universities and some private colleges, with presentations on ‘A Day in the Life of…’. Our careers advisor can help with interview techniques, scholarship applications, preparation for portfolios, bonus points advice, EAS, UAC, TAFE and private college applications.
Each week our careers advisor provides students and parents with the latest information about further study and career paths via a page in our school bulletin, Ma Nishma.
