The Career Development Team (CDT helps manage student career transitions in work, community, further learning.
Career and Enterprise
Career education has moved towards learning to manage and take responsibility for personal career development before even leaving school. The Career and Enterprise course equips students with the tools to head confidently into an uncertain future. It begins with recognising individual skills and talents, and moves on to using this understanding to find work and keep it. All aspects of work and workplaces are explored, from entry level to working globally. Changing technology, employment patterns and economic restructuring are realities of the rapidly changing world of work students will be entering. Learning to deal with constant change through adaptability, enterprise and lifelong learning are vital elements of the course, along with exploration of social,cultural and environmental issues.
Certificate in General Education for Adults (CGEA)
The CGEA is a pathway for students whose goal is to improve literacy and numeracy. This program is a recognised entrance course for further TAFE qualifications.
School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships
A School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship is a part-time training program, undertaken with an employer that is an integral part of a student’s broader study towards WACE.
It combines school studies with on the job training (at the business) and off the job training (at a TAFE).
Upon successful completion of the SBT program, students will receive the WACE from the Curriculum Council and a Traineeship Certificate II level. For the SBA, a year of credit is given to your Apprenticeship.
Workplace Learning provides opportunities for students to develop skills in the workplace and obtain credit towards the WACE. Students are placed in an appropriate work situation and are required to maintain a formal record of workplace learning. It should be noted that Workplace Learning takes many forms. Students have the option to undertake WPL as a course or as an endorsed program.
Work Education: Certificate I
This course equips students with general entry knowledge and skills required to begin a job in any workplace. Students complete seven units of competency, over a minimum of 110 hours, forty hours of which must be completed as Workplace Learning on the job training. This course strongly supports Workplace Learning Mode 2.
Details of the units offered can be found in the Senior Secondary Choices handbook.
