Careers Space 2022 

Last week, we hosted 32 Alumni on campus, to visit and chat to our students. A fantastic array of skills, careers, interests and diverse studying options were discussed by Year 11 and Year 12s in a speed-dating style round-table forum.

It was great to see so many Alumni, sitting on the other side of the desk, giving practical advice to our students. The point of the day was to get our students thinking and talking. Some of the best conversations were held between students who chatted to an Alum from a different area of interest, opening eyes to new possibilities.

I heard some fantastic feedback from one Year 12 student who sat at a table listening to a discussion on an area she had previously not been interested in. Upon hearing about the course, work opportunities and experiences available, she has now decided to change directions and is pursuing some new avenues. This is why talking to others is invaluable.

UTS Early Offer Program

UTS came to speak to our Year 12’s on campus this week. Their Early Offer Program opens next month. Interested students can register here.

Hearing about UTS and their practical, hands-on and relevant industry-led way of teaching, made me want to go back to study.

Some of these examples were:

  • Forensic Scientists in fake crime scene’s identifying evidence
  • Mock classrooms in the Education faculty to emulate what it is like to teach
  • Super labs with technicians examining a variety of sometimes lethal chemicals
  • Midwifery and nursing quarters that replicate real hospitals
  • Technological labs with all of the latest up to the minute technology
  • Entrepreneurial hubs enabling for all new start ups to thrive
  • Transdisciplinary innovation where all fields of students can work on real time problems and come up with real solutions and then present these back to industry

I urge anyone who wants to learn in the most up to date methods to apply.
