Careers and VET Services

Welcome to the Careers and VET Services section for 2022

Our Careers Counsellors, Rose Coorey and Anthony Vizaniaris, have various means of communicating with students and families:

  • A direct email to the Year Level concerned, often including parents/caregivers
  • Advertising of opportunities in the Daily Notices
  • SEQTA – The main hub for Careers and VET information is the Careers Portal accessible on SEQTA (see the black and green tile)
2021 Year 12 Graduates

We are celebrating the success of our 2021 Year 12 Graduates and will share some of the highlights over the coming weeks. For the first time we have a student combining part time university studies in Medical Sciences with a part time apprenticeship. This means in ten years time he could be a qualified Carpenter and on the path to becoming a Sports Doctor. Contact is still being made with graduates so we can offer support in their transition and finalise our 2021 Destination Report. To maintain contact, we ask that past students update any changes to their personal details by clicking here.

2022 Year 12 Students

The first key date for 2022 has arrived. Students who have their name on a Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card who wish to sit the UCAT as a requirement for entry to Medicine Dentistry and/or Oral Health should be aware the Concession Application is now open on the UCAT ANZ website and will close on 10 May 2022. These students can apply and have first choice in the date they wish to sit the UCAT. All other students need to wait until 1 March 2022. Students who qualify for Concession as per the website should book an appointment with Ms Coorey ASAP. We will be communicating with any student interested in Medicine Dentistry and/or Oral Health in the coming weeks. To make an appointment with a Careers Counsellor, please visit Mrs Tidd at the LEC Front Desk.

University of Melbourne have opened their Aspiring Scholars Program. 2022 Aspiring Scholars is for high-achieving secondary students in their final year who live in Australia outside of Victoria or in New Zealand, to join their online community of Aspiring Scholars – students connected by their interest in moving to Melbourne to study at the University of Melbourne. If you are interested, students need to make contact with Ms Coorey who can initiate the application. Please click here for more information.

Community Support

Each year we encourage community members to contact us if you have employment opportunities for our students. We currently have two 2021 Year 12 graduates still looking for part time casual employment in the retail space. Neither of these students have experience in the job market and are struggling to secure their first step and may require that extra bit of support. We would love to hear from you if your business could support these students in particular.
