CAREER EDUCATION PROGRAM
Year 10 students recently completed an online Career Assessment tool that will help them match their strengths and personality with an array of jobs. Your child has received the results from this assessment. Personality is only one consideration in finding a rewarding career, other personal characteristics such as interests, values, natural ability, skills and academic are also important. The students are currently working through the Careers Workbook to learn more about themselves. Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries.
