The  Careers centre is a valuable school resource that assists students to prepare themselves  for tertiary study or the workplace.

We have a careers advisor who

  • Offers personalised career counselling and self assessments to help students identify their strengths and interests. Many students have no idea of the direction they want to take after College – a korero with the advisor can often be a great starting point.

  • Career Resources – there are countless resources available like university and polytechnic prospectuses, course flyers, information on different careers, videos, CD ROMs and web resources relevant to careers.

  • There are many opportunities to attend events such as career expos, university/polytechnic visits, work experience days, visits from many tertiary education providers and private companies.
  • Tertiary Accommodation Applications – the careers advisor will also assist students who are considering moving to another region for their tertiary study.
