At Glenroy College we have a whole of school approach to Careers Development that reflects the Victorian Careers Curriculum framework. The aim of our Career Development program is to build student resilience by developing their knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours that are necessary to effectively manage lifelong learning and a successful career.
The services our Career’s team offer include:
- A dedicated Careers and Pathways Centre
- Career Development delivered to Year 7-12
- Career Education integrated into all domain areas
- Individual Career counselling
- Career action planning
Glenroy College’s whole of school approach includes:
- Year 7 & 8 – My Career Exploration
Career exploration is an important step that students will take in their career journey. Designed as a series of activities, My Career Exploration will give students learning experiences in and beyond the classroom so they can find out more about themselves and the exciting world of work.
- Year 9 – My Career Insights
All year 9 students will be given access to the Morrisby Tool an online career discovery assessment. Analysis of their Morrisby career assessment will be provided through one-on-one career counselling by an external accredited career practitioner.
- Year 10 – I plan
Students focus on planning their Pathway to achieve broad career goals that offer a range of options. Students use their increased self-knowledge and deeper understanding of education and training requirements to inform these decisions.
An important part of this includes deciding whether to pursue a VCE or VCAL Pathway in the senior years. Glenroy College has compiled a VCE and VCAL Handbook to help guide student decision making.
Students are also asked to complete a Subject Choices Survey while planning their individual Pathway.
- Year 11 – I decide
Students focus on confirming and managing their career action plan. This plan is designed to reflect the student’s current personal profile, including skills, abilities, attitudes and academic performance. Year 11 students explore and consolidate their knowledge of the labour market, further education and training requirements they need for their future career plan.
- Year 12 – I apply
Students will critically examine their career goals and have a sound knowledge of the requirements for their planned further education, training or employment choices. They will be aware of alternative pathways to achieve their preferred career and manage the application process required to successfully transition from Secondary Education.
- Years 7 to 12 – My Career Portfolio
An online resource that supports students to create and update an online career action plan, store files related their course and career planning and access links to current information and resources to support career and course exploration.
