Careers and Pathways

Career Education at Garin

The aim of career education and guidance at Garin College is to help students to develop their career management competencies as they transition through school to further learning, work and life.

Our aim is for every student to leave school with a personalised career plan. In the junior school, students develop a sense of self-awareness and knowledge of the opportunities available in the world of work. In the senior school we focus on the ability to make decisions, set goals and take action.

The Careers team works with teachers, Deans and Guidance staff to provide a range of services, opportunities and experiences so that students can make informed choices as they transition. Subject selection is a key time for these conversations. In term 2 there is a combined school Careers Roadshow where tertiary providers and industry training providers can answer students questions directly.

We use Career Central as a digital platform to manage career information school wide, giving students 24/7 access to career resources. Students are encourage to take ownership of their career plans and develop their career management competencies. They can book appointments with career staff and receive notifications about career events of interest to them.

Parents/Caregivers are welcome to make an appointment to discuss their student’s individual pathway.
