Thinking about the future
At St Aloysius College we actively assist students to make informed choices about their future through career counselling, career education programs and careful subject selection at the senior secondary level. A comprehensive guide to career and study options may be found on the SAC library web page.
We also provide opportunities for senior students to participate in vocational programs.
Vocational Education and Training (VET)
Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses offer students opportunities to undertake work related training while they are still at school in areas such as hospitality, retail, community services, interior design, graphic design, fitness, nursing, digital photography, event management, makeup and skin care and the music industry.
Some students use VET as a possible career pathway, some use the qualification to gain casual work whilst at school or university, while others are simply looking for an added challenge that will complement their school studies. Years 10 to 12 students are eligible to apply for after school VET courses.
Year 10 students participate in Work Experience whereby they attend a work placement of their choice for one week. The program enables the students to explore possible career paths for the future and leads to informed subject selection for Stage 1 and 2.
