Pathways at St Johns
Career education is one of the key components for lifelong success. The Pathways Program at St John’s College aims to provide a service that empowers and informs each student so that they can make well informed subject choices in preparation for life beyond school.
Students are encouraged to reflect on their interests, skills, abilities and aspirations and how these relate to careers. They will explore the range of opportunities available to them and how jobs and careers are changing. Our aim is to prepare our students for the move to university, TAFE or employment, and provide them with lifelong skills to help manage future career transitions.
A focus on careers gives students an individual purpose in learning which increases their confidence and motivation. Students will hear from people from a wide range of courses and careers and be given the opportunity to experience the world of work, understand employer expectations and build their employability skills.
Students will participate in pathway interviewing to discuss their individual pathways planning and other courses (including VET) and career related issues, as well as receive targeted support in relation to VCE subject selection and tertiary applications. Choosing a career will be an exciting and empowering process.
