Year 10 Mentoring TAFE Excursion
In Week 4, our Year 10 Mentoring class toured TAFE campuses at Wyong, Ourimbah and Gosford, where they listened to presentations on Electrotechnology, Plumbing, Welding, Construction and Fitness.

This included VET pathways which students can access in Year 11. The day sparked interest and discussion about future careers and opportunities and we encourage our students to continue this  discussion with their parents and in their Careers lessons with Mrs Dignam, Leader of Learning Careers/VET.  A special thank you to Gale Iseppi at TAFE for organising this excursion.

Student Reflections

“I enjoyed our visit to the TAFE as I learnt a lot of information about different trades that I did not know about” Ellis 

“While at TAFE on Monday, we sat in on a demonstration for mechanics, electrical, plumbing, carpentry, and welding.  It inspired me to take a closer look at carpentry. David who was one of the presenters explained that a lot of the work is not in a classroom, it’s on the job training. This is much better for me, because I find I am a person who works better when not in a classroom setting. This excursion has helped motivate me to secure an apprenticeship”  Lucas 

“I enjoyed going to the Ourimbah TAFE. The students where building a house and it was cool to see it come to life”  Samuel 

“I enjoyed learning about the many choices that TAFE has to offer. I am very interested in mechanics and electrical engineering. It was helpful to hear from the TAFE Teachers what these course involved and even better to see the simulated set ups”  Flynn
