Guiding students to find their path
Navigating the world of possible careers can be daunting and deciding on a career path is a big decision for our boys and their families. Our careers service exists to support our students on this journey, and with our career education programme, students are guided through this process and encouraged to make informed choices about their future career pathways.
Throughout the school year, career education is taught to students in Years 7-12, enabling them to develop career management competencies and shape a future that meets their individual strengths and talents. Year 9 and 10 students will receive a dedicated career lesson in Term 3 each year, with a focus on subject selection for their senior years.
Every student in Years 11 and 12 participates in a personal interview with our school Careers Counsellor, to ensure their subject choices are in line with their future career aspirations. In Year 13, career education is included in our curriculum every week to prepare students for life beyond school. Students will develop skills in interviewing and CV writing and are offered advice on tertiary scholarships.
As part of our career education, we also offer:
- Individual or group careers counselling, which parents are welcome to attend
- Help transition from school to work or training
- The facilitation of visits to open days and experience days at tertiary and industry education providers
- Specialist programmes from outside providers for Māori and Pasifika students
- StudyLink and IRD information sessions
