Careers at Antonine

Thursday, May 25, 2023

For Career Development a students had the opportunity over the last couple of weeks to engage in a number of activities.

A representative from VU met with our year 11 and 12 to discuss the many courses of interest and the unique Block Model of learning at the university. It is producing an increasing number of successful and satisfied graduates. Students study a subject every 4 weeks completing ongoing assessments and learning the skills of management and organisation for better learning. Students in Year 11 and 12 also realised they are eligible for the VU Guarantee which ensures each candidate will be individually contacted to discuss relevant pathways. Many Antonine students in 2022 received similar guarantees and the chance of scholarships, relieving them of the uncertainty of where to study and helping them to find a suitable course of study.

We visited the annual VCE and Career Expo at the Melbourne Showgrounds with the Year 11 on Friday 19 May. All students prepared in class by reading the list of stall holders from university, TAFE, employer groups and others. Students prepared questions about courses and job prospects. They were able to work their way independently around the expo meeting people to discuss their interests and plans. Students are also aware and planning to attend Open Days for Universities and TAFE scheduled for mid year. It is important that students make time to get the information before making pathway decisions.

All Year 10 returned their Work Experience forms and are engaged work experience this week. Teachers are in the process of visiting students. It was encouraging to have received a call from an employer this week impressed with our students’ professionalism. Students prepared for work experience completing class activities on occupational health and safety, employer and employer expectations, so its great to see that Antonine students are so well regarded.

Future You aims to show children the many opportunities awaiting them through STEM and other vital skills.
