Our dedicated Careers and Pathways program is designed to assist students in preparing themselves for their futures, whether that's planning for further study or movement into the workplace.
St Andrew's takes a rounded approach to providing career pathway advice and support to students, recognising that each student has different interests, strengths, capabilities, values, and life goals. Opportunities for senior study include General and Applied objects and VET options to ensure students their personalised pathway to tertiary education, vocational education and training, or work - with each student's individual pathway guided by our staff. Throughout their journey in the senior years, students receive one-on-one advice from our Careers and Pathways team and are exposed to multiple opportunities to gain insight and knowledge into future career options. Building student awareness of the importance of developing their confidence, communication skills, relationship, and teamwork skills for the workforce, is an important part of our approach.
St Andrew’s offers pathways for students not pursuing an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank), providing access to Certificate and Diploma courses as well as traineeships and apprenticeships in Years 10, 11 and 12.
St Andrew’s is dedicated to delivering the very best in quality training and assessment to our students, including through the close partnerships we foster with Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) to offer an extensive range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses.
