It is important we acknowledge the stress and pressure that Year 12’s face – pressure to finish off all of their school, farm and trades work requirements (to a high standard), and the pressure felt about leaving school, leaving their friends and entering the ‘real world’. Many students take this in their stride; they know what they want, how to get it and feel comfortable pursuing it. For others though, they can be somewhat paralysed by fear and not utilise the time remaining and resources at hand (us) to help set them up for that next big step.
For those students who require additional support in planning their transition, our staff are here to help.
Our College is always flooded with employment, apprenticeship and training opportunities and staff do a great job updating the Employment Notice Boards around the College (Farm, Trades and Residential Rec Foyer). Other ways students can investigate options include:
With low unemployment rate, and high vacancy rates, there has never been a better time for young people to access a career of their choosing, particularly in Agriculture. In order to make the most of these opportunities, students are encouraged to assess their interests, skills and abilities against possible employment, training or apprenticeship options, and we are always here to help.
