Year 10 Pathways and SET Planning:
Throughout the year there are opportunities for students to further grow their knowledge of careers and develop their employment related skills through our signature 'Year 10 Pathways' program. This program involves the engagement in a Certificate I in Information, Digital Media and Technology (ICT10115) and Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways (FSK20113). These qualifications not only provide foundation skill development for progression into employment but enhance literacy, numeracy and technology skills required for transitioning into senior.
Year 10 students in Term 2 and Term 3 will engage in SET (Senior Education and Training) Planning, an individual learning plan of action to achieve success in Year 11 and Year 12. Students will build on their learnings in Year 9 and continue to explore the changing world of work and will engage in examining their options across education, training and employment sectors based on their interests, personal qualities, abilities and ambitions. Students and families will be guided through the SET-P process by discussions with the Senior Schooling Head of Department and Deputy Principal, along with external supports from Universities, TAFE, private providers and Busy at Work.
