Year 10 Mock Interviews
On Thursday 18th May Year 10 students and VCAL students will participate in their Mock interviews. Year 10 students will select a “pretend” part time job to research and apply for, prepare a cover letter and a resume. This preparation will take place during the student’s special interest elective as well as preparing at home. Parents are encouraged to support their child by helping them to identify their employability skills and areas of strength.
On the day we will once again welcome a large number of community partners into our college who volunteer their time to interview our students. Once again we are very appreciative of their involvement in making the interview a very authentic process for the student.
Try a Trade and Career Expo
On Tuesday 2nd May all Year 9 students and the Year 11 VCAL students will be attending the Cranbourne Race course for the Try a Trade and Career Expo. This event aims to provide students with an opportunity to gain hands on experience with a range of trades including plumbing, bricklaying, carpentry, hairdressing, hospitality, automotive, horticulture, nursing, and other trades. Many of these trades have been identified as skill shortage areas- meaning in is anticipated that there will be many jobs in these areas in the future. This is a valuable opportunity for students to ask questions and try out some trades- there will be many Universities and businesses represented at the event as well. Students need to return their permission forms or get parents online consent by Friday 28th April.
