Careers

At Kurunjang Secondary College we provide our students with a range of career development programs and services. The aim of these programs and services is to assist students to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours necessary to effectively self-manage their life, learning and work.

Programs and support services include:

  • Individual careers counselling
  • Careers resources
  • Career development education
  • Managed Individual Pathways and Career Action Plans
  • Assistance with Structured Workplace Learning
  • Course counselling

Excursions and Incursions form an integral part of the Careers Development Program. This incorporates all year levels from 7 to 12 and includes:

  • Junior Years – Exposure to programs within a Tertiary Institution setting.
  • Year 10 – Deakin University Experience Day
  • Year 10 – Melbourne Careers Expo
  • Year 11 / VCAL – Melton City Council Careers Expo

Year 12 – TIS – (Tertiary Information Service)  The TIS seminar and expo sessions provide an opportunity for Year 12 students to research their tertiary study options; discuss careers and course content with tertiary representatives and collect course information from all the major Victorian universities and local TAFE institutes. It is a unique opportunity for students to gather firsthand information from the wide range of tertiary providers in attendance.

  •  Work Experience

All students are given the opportunity to complete at least one week of Work Experience during Year 10.

This provides students with an excellent opportunity to explore possible career directions, network and gain experience to include on their resume. Students will primarily observe and learn, and undertake manageable tasks; they will not undertake activities that require extensive training or expertise.

Students also complete Safe@work modules so they are fully aware of Occupational Health & Safety hazards in the workplace. Benefits of the programme include,

  • Work alongside adults as part of a team to gain an understanding of work
  • Develop and practice a range of new skills
  • Become more independent and confident
  • Relate the school curriculum to the workplace
  • Increase motivation to continue their study and/or undertake further training
  • Explore career options
