National Careers Week

Last week we celebrated National Careers Week at Ave. Our theme was ‘Careers – Discover and Explore’. The aim of this week was for students to participate in positive career development activities and have career conversations at school and at home. The highlight of the week were our guest speakers and career activities, where our students were inspired by various career areas:

Year 10 Citipower/Powercor STEM Careers Roadshow

Year 11 Career Workshops in Health and Biomedicine, Business and Design, or Law and Criminology

Year 12 Presentations from Alumna Emily Bock - Biomedicine, University of Melbourne and VET Champions: Hannah Valenti– Youth Worker, Ashley Belteky– Kinetic Diesel Motor Mechanic 

In addition to our activities and conversations within the College, our Year 11 students attended the Victorian Careers Show at Melbourne Showgrounds, where they researched future careers and courses from over 70 exhibitors.

Open Days and Early Entry Programs

All students and families in Year 10, 11 and 12 are encouraged to attend Open Days at tertiary institutions. These are usually on Sundays in July and August. The calendar is now available here.

Early Entry Programs recognise student contribution to school or community and/or academic performance in Year 11. To view the resource, see the Ave Maria Careers Website.
