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, email@example.com, ph 380 7655.

Changes to our scholarships
Victoria University of Wellington has a comprehensive suite of scholarships that support significant numbers of students throughout their higher education journey. We have made changes to the suite of school-leaver scholarships to reflect the university’s holistic approach in enabling students to achieve their ambitions. We’ve given them new names to reflect this change.
Each scholarship is named for a different type of pounamu (greenstone). Māori consider pounamu to be a taonga and the precious stone has an important place in te ao Māori. Pounamu protects and acts as a source of strength for those who possess it and for future generations.
Naming our scholarships for pounamu is a signal of the importance of these scholarships and the enduring impact we believe they can have for students. The three school-leaver scholarships are the Tangiwai, Totoweka and Kahotea scholarships.
More information on each scholarship can be found below and on our website. We’ll also be sending posters to your school in the coming weeks with information about the new scholarships.
Tangiwai Scholarship—for excellence
Up to 600 scholarships will be awarded, valued at $5,000 each, which can be put towards accommodation costs at a Victoria hall of residence, or (for students not in a hall) as a contribution towards your first-year living costs. Find out more here
Totoweka Scholarship—for equity and support
Up to 200 scholarships will be awarded, valued at $5,000, which can be put towards accommodation costs at a Victoria hall of residence, or (for students not in a hall) as a contribution towards your first-year living costs. Find out more here.
