Careers News, Presentations, and Work Placement
Pathways Presentations

As part of the Careers and Transition Program at St Edward’s College the following presentations have been organized to inform students of their pathway options so that they can make informed decisions after school.  Please note that attendance is not compulsory and is only for interested students.  My advice to students who are unsure about pathway options, is to attend all of the presentations.

VET Courses (Vocational Education and Training)

White Card Course News – Year 11

Students in Construction and Entertainment will be completing their White Card Course on Tuesday 19 February, 21 February, 26 February and 28 February to enable them to go out on work placement  in Term 2.  Registration (Privacy Note) can be found in Student VET Folders.  Please return via VET Coordinator or  VET Teacher.

Work Placement Update – Year 11

Students in Construction, Hospitality, Metal and Engineering and Entertainment have been busy registering for their work placement which begins in Term 2.  Below is a reminder of when your son is going out on work placement for 5 days.  Please note, on his return, he will need to catch up on work missed from other subjects.  This can often feel daunting at first, but if students read ahead in their course work in other subjects, prior to going out on placement, it makes the transition back to school easier.
