The Careers Advisor assists students to explore options as they prepare for life after school. Students are advantaged by being supported individually for four years, which is possible due to the Senior School not being large. The Careers Advisor’s role is multi-faceted and includes motivating, informing and resourcing students in their studies and career pathways and assisting them in identifying skills and God’s calling on their lives.
There are four main post-school options:
The Covenant College Careers Program includes:
Students may choose to study the semester long Industry & Enterprise course as part of the Year 10 elective offerings. A key component of this class is the mandatory 35 hours of Structured Work Placement the students need to complete during the Term 1, 2 or 3 school holidays. This placement is arranged by the student in a field of their interest. Students may work with one or many employers in order to accrue their 35 hours. Students also complete Occupational Health & Safety training, refine their job search and employability skills and explore labour market trends through this course.
Year 10 students may choose to undertake a Work Experience placement. This is an optional component of the Year 10 program. Placement are to be arranged by the student/family and take place during Term 1, 2, or 3 school holidays. We encourage students to aim for 5 days of placement. This could be in a one week block or individual days spread over the 3 school holiday periods. Occupational Health & Safety training and the Department of Education Work Experience Paperwork must be completed before students attend a placement.
