Careers & Pathways

MIPs (Managed Individual Pathways) is an initiative of the Victorian Government, designed to assist students in Years 10 to Year 12 to develop an individual pathways plan and to make informed decisions about effective transitions between education, training and employment. Students are offered assistance with subject selection, course information, vocational pathway planning, resume writing, job applications, work experience placements and VTAC applications.

Careers Education takes a number of different forms within the school:

• Individual teacher / student counselling regarding career paths, appropriate subject choice for particular careers or further education.

• Experiential activities include one week of work experience for all year 10 students in Term 3 and the RIJI program in Term 4. RIJI is a work readiness program that assists students in developing good job search, resume writing and interviewing skills. It culminates in a face-to-face interview with a local volunteer employer during a RIJI event.

• Various ‘Careers Days’ are offered and organised for students throughout the year.
