Creating opportunities for all children and young people to be on their way to success in education, work, and life
One of the most important partnerships currently in place and available to all year 10-12 students at each of the North Central Cluster Schools is the ‘Career Education Partnership’ (formerly known as MIPs).
This is a partnership that sees the NCLLEN working collaboratively with nine secondary colleges across the north central region to ensure that each year every student in years 10 – 12 has the opportunity for one to one support in creating a Career Action Plan (CAP).
The CAP is not about career advisers ‘telling’ students what they should do, but rather supporting students to explore their interests and know how to find information that will help them in understanding the pathways and options they have for the future.
Students are supported to explore vocational pathways, university pathways and how to prepare for employment after school.
Understanding what opportunities will be available beyond school can motivate and inform students and parents when it comes time for subject selections and post school applications for training, higher education, or employment.
During Covid-19 Careers and Pathways Coordinator Sue Clay has been putting together weekly newsletters to provide students in Years 10-12 with information about career and post-secondary school education opportunities.
