Careers explored at Newhaven College

 

NEWHAVEN College students looked to the future recently to explore their post-secondary options at the college’s annual careers expo.

This year’s expo was the biggest yet, with 40 exhibitors providing 330 years 9 to 12 students and parents with ideas and advice ontertiary study and a broad spectrum of employment options.

Careers coordinator Hugh Wilson was most excited about the program of seminars on offer, covering everything from trades and engineering to the arts and business, as well as some unusual jobs and gap year options.

“This year we had 34individual half-hour seminars on offer for students to allow them to explore their areas of interest more deeply and find out if what they enjoy doing in life could evolve into a career,” he said.

“The seminars are more engaging than just chatting to an exhibitor at a stand. The presenters really stimulate the students’ imagination andopen their minds to new ideas. We also had the largest number of parents accompany their children to the expo and received great feedback from parents throughout the day.”

Places in years 10–12 are available at Newhaven College in 2016. Please phone Kelly Fuery on 5956 7505 (option 1) or visit www.newhavencol.vic.edu.au for more information.
