Careers Education at Tara

The aim of career education at Tara is to provide learning experiences which will assist girls to:

  • develop an awareness of their changing abilities, interests and values in relation to career planning

  • acquire a knowledge of work, further education and training pathways

  • plan and evaluate career decisions based on a knowledge of themselves and the ever increasing careers and tertiary courses open to them

  • acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to implement their decisions

To achieve these aims the careers department services include:

  • Careers noticeboards feature a wide range of information including weekly newsletters and a monthly calendar of events, closing dates and revision seminars and opportunities to study internationally. All students and parents have the opportunity to receive weekly Careers newsletters to their personal emails

  • Career education lessons for students from Year 9 to Year 12. During these lessons students are assisted to establish goals, confidently research careers and courses, understand application procedures and develop flexible pathway plans for the future

  • All Year 10 students participate in work experience to explore an occupation of their choice

  • Year 10 students are also provided with the opportunity to complete The Morrisby Report, which helps students plan for the future. Each student receives a 20 page individual report with 12 suggested occupations based on the student’s interests, abilities and personality. This Career Guidance Report assists students to make informed decisions regarding subjects, courses and careers

  • Interviews for students regarding HSC subjects, goal setting, comparing tertiary options and entry schemes, scholarships and job seeking skills to assist students to plan for further education and employment

  • Speakers from Universities and Colleges address interested students with attendance at the Faculty Information Days and Careers Expo’s encouraged
