Career Planning & Support
It is recognised at Scots College that the key to success, both within school and out, is for students to have a passion for subjects, values and interests that ultimately lead to a satisfying career where students reach their full potential.
Career education with the availability of On-line psychometric questionnaires, and advice provided in the Senior School helps give students the necessary information, tools and confidence to face a succession of options, decisions and career choices.
Career education is incorporated for all year levels through the pastoral care tutorials run through the House system. There is a well resourced careers room highlighting a variety of tertiary institutions and industry training establishments. Appointments for career interviews can be made at anytime with the Careers Adviser Mr Gary Henley-Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org, ph 380 7655.
