Curriculum and Activities: Careers Education
Careers Education at Hunters Hill High School comprises a multifaceted approach to expose students to an ever-changing world of work.
In Year 10, students are given multiple opportunities for career exploration, through the launch of Careers Week, active support in the subject selection process, and a number of extracurricular programs. Students are encouraged to engage in work experience through a flexible approach, maximising the best possible experience to suit their needs and interest.
The Careers Education program gives senior students the opportunity to meet with industry experts, attend the University Guest Speaker Series, and attend a variety of excursions to explore their options in an ever-changing world of work. They are actively encouraged to contact the Careers Advisor for one-on-one interviews to help them figure out the best pathway for them. Seminars run every term on University and TAFE updates, application procedures, scholarship writing workshops and additional criteria for different degrees.
All students are encouraged to sign up to the website www.jobjump.com.au (contact Ms Polak for the school password). This website has a wealth of information and resources for parents and students alike. Individual career counselling is available to all students. This can be arranged by emailing Ms Polak at email@example.com or visiting her in the Careers Office.
