The Careers Education programme is primarily aimed at Year 10, 11 and 12. Early in Year 10 – students participate in a Vocational Assessment Programme (Career Avenues), which includes an interview based on their Vocation Report.The Report is useful for students, and their parents, as a guide for ‘subject selection’ in Year 11 and 12.  Furthermore, it can be used as a basis for determining and planning a career path.Year 10 students are also involved in a four-week Pastoral Care Programme focusing on a greater understanding of future career opportunities.

In Term I the ‘OTU Careers Evening’ is conducted.This event provides all Senior students the opportunity to talk informally to people working in more than 50 career areas.

Year 11 and 12 students may elect to do Vocational Education Training courses at a TAFE College on Tuesday afternoons.These “TVET’ courses can provide essential skills for students considering apprenticeships or specialised vocations not requiring university study.

In Year 12, students have greater access to the Careers Adviser and the information in the Careers Room.  Students need to avail themselves of these opportunities and resources in order to help them make informed decisions about tertiary courses, scholarships, cadetships, exchange programmes, alternative entry pathways to university, traineeships and apprenticeship opportunities.  Students are strongly advised to organise an interview with the Careers Adviser. As part of the Year 12 Pastoral Care Programme a series of lectures, over four weeks, are presented which focus on the skills of developing resumes, avenues for career information and advice and pathways to further study. A Tertiary Awareness Day is conducted in Term II for students in Year 12 to talk to representatives from all NSW universities and private tertiary education colleges.

Senior students are encouraged to begin the process of considering different vocations by attending lunch-time talks by visiting speakers, attending university open days and information evenings, reading the Careers Notice Board, frequently, and availing themselves of the large amount of material on display in the Careers Room. They should also read the Careers section in the Head Master’s Bulletin.
