Career Education and Guidance at Carmel College develops students’ ideas in programmes from Year 7 through to Year 13.
The Year 7&8 focus is on a deeper understanding of oneself and an introductory look at pathways for learning and work.
A Career Day at Year 10 provides an understanding of NCEA, linkage of one’s skills, attributes and strengths to subject selection, subject pathways through Years 11 to 13 and goal setting. Students also complete a team activity, ‘The Carmel Challenge’ that focuses on personality traits and career choice.
Year 11 students explore the importance of a CV and prepare this document for themselves. They also attend the North Shore Pathway Expo.
At Year 12 camp students look at options beyond secondary school including UE requirements, rank scores, course admission requirements and future career choice pathways. In Term 2 they have a Career Intensive Day followed by a 2 day work experience placement. During the year students have the opportunity to attend Taster, Star and Experience days, campus visits and career expo evenings.
Year 13 students have fortnightly career classes that allow time for individual pathway research, and guidance relating to financial literacy, scholarship, hall of residence and tertiary applications. Each student receives individual guidance through career interviews and/or career counselling. During the year, students have the opportunity to attend Taster, Star and Experience days, campus visits and career expo evenings.
At Carmel College students can also become involved in Gateway and Career Pathways. These schemes provide opportunities for students to gain work experience in fields they may be considering as a career choice.
