Careers

 Did You Know?

Globalisation, Outsourcing and Automation are the key ways in which technology is disrupting the future of careers.

 

What does this disruption of the workforce mean for young people?

They will need to approach their career with a flexible, globally minded and multi-disciplinary approach.

There will be exponential growth in careers in the areas of genomics, cyber-safety, big data analysis and biotechnology.

Competencies such as strong project management skills, innovative thinking, digital literacy and a commitment to lifelong learning will be key to take advantage of the changing workforce.

 

We welcome all students in all years.

Term 4 is a great opportunity to come and meet one of the Careers advisors.   Our office is open every day and all students are welcome and encouraged to drop in with their diaries or send an email to book a time.  Appointments can be made before school, during lunch or after school, senior students can book during a study period.  Please  email   the careers team.
