Career education at All Saints’ College aims to provide a program dedicated to assisting each student in making informed decisions about their career pathways, inclusive of school and post school education, training and employment options. The focus is on helping and supporting students to plan their transition from high school to their ideal post school option.
The College is fortunate to staff two Careers Advisors, one on each campus, who provide a service that facilitates career decision making. They both provide timely advice, specialised knowledge and seek to assist students in gaining a realistic understanding of themselves, their strengths, weaknesses, interests and values, in relation to their career journey. Both Careers Advisors hold specific qualifications in Career Education and Development and are members of professional associations and networks to ensure the delivery of their programs are current and relevant to external employment forces shaping the local area.
The careers program at All Saints' College is primarily focused on using a consultative process with students and parents through counselling and interviews. This provides individualised support for students transitioning from school into further education and training or the workforce. While there are many opportunities for students to individually explore in today’s world and many options open to them through their education system, the focus is on meeting the individual needs of each student, and therefore the process of counselling and interview is highly valued by the campus careers advisors.
Both campuses of All Saints' College provide a dedicated Careers Resource Centre, which are well resourced and specifically managed to satisfy the needs of each campus.
