Over the years at Carwatha College P-12 students have been fortunate enough to hear about the career pathways and life goals of some pretty impressive guests speakers one of our most high profile was certainly Thursdays guest Cosentino – he was brilliant the students in V1, V2 and V3 really enjoyed his energy and message.
Following Cosentino’s presentation, V1 students started some Managed Individual Pathway (MIPs) career research activities and many started a career quiz. As time had run over from the Guest speaker we will work further with students in the coming weeks to complete this activity.

Career Watch… spotlight on Nursing
The website www.NurseInfo.com.au defines a nurse is a “highly skilled health care professional who combines the art of caring with scientific knowledge and skills developed through their education and career. A nurse is involved in the education of patients around health and disease processes, health promotion activities, clinical procedures and management of nursing processes. Nursing enables one to work in a diverse range of settings including hospitals, community settings, general practices, prisons, homes and residential settings.”
There are two ‘divisions’ in nursing:
Registered Nurses (known as Division 1 nurses in Victoria)
Enrolled Nurses (known as Division 2 nurses in Victoria)
The two levels of nursing differ in relation to the responsibilities they hold.
- Registered Nurse
To become a Registered (Division 1) Nurse you need to complete a Bachelor of Nursing and these degrees are available at most Australian universities.
- Enrolled Nurse
To become an Enrolled (Division 2) Nurse you need to complete a Diploma in Nursing or a Certificate IV in Nursing at a TAFE institution. This may vary between Australian state/territories.
The attached a document outlines some of the Degree courses available in Victoria to apply to become a Registered (Div 1) Nurse. Currently TAFE requirements are changing for what students need to do prior to applying for a Diploma or Cert 4 course to be an Enrolled (Div 2) nurse. I will send through an update once this information is updated for the 2018 entry.
Student reflection Tata Consultancy Work Experience- by Krisha Soria (Year 10)
“I was privileged to participate in the Go For I.T program with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). We were provided with many opportunities to learn and make the most of everything that came our way. We were also required to take initiative in all that was asked of us and had many encounters with successful and inspiring people. Throughout the week we systematically went though an agenda, which focused on assisting us build up our confidence and I.T skills; such as an interview skill workshop, mock interviews, arranging business meetings and coding, but what really stood out for me was the conference call based in Melbourne and Sydney for International Woman’s Day. We got to see an insight of a professional work environment and hear the diverse opinions of both men and women in the field and their views on woman in the industry. Did you know that woman have to work TWO times harder than men to get the same recognition? Women also tend to hold themselves back, even when they obtain more qualities and qualifications. This infuriates me, being informed on this stimulates me to work hard and to put myself forward. “Leaders are leaders.” “You don’t need a title to lead but a desire.” Regardless of who you are, you are able to make a difference in this world, just remember, “Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, but don’t make the same mistake twice.” I am immensely grateful for this experience and all that I will take away from it.
