Careers and Pathways Program
Students at Lalor Secondary College have access to a highly structured and intensive Careers Counselling Program. We are committed to offering our students the best possible support and guidance through our Managed Individual Pathways program (MIPs). This program ensures that all students at Lalor Secondary College receive the appropriate support, information and education regarding the many post-secondary pathway opportunities.
Careers and Pathways Coordinator
All students at the college have access to a full-time Career / Pathways Coordinator to assist with course and career planning. Students in Years 9-12 participate in interactive, informative and relevant careers related activities and interviews. In addition to this, a number of presentations from guest speakers and careers focused excursions are organised to provide students with the maximum opportunity to learn about the many University, TAFE and employment options available to young people.
Year 12 students are especially supported to prepare for university and TAFE entry and receive extensive support. Assistance and advice is provided regarding tertiary course selection, Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) applications, Scholarship applications and change of preference after ATAR scores are released.
A highlight of the Year 10 calendar is Work Experience. This program is coordinated by the Careers Team and all students are assisted to secure appropriate placements.
A record of each student/Careers Team contact is maintained and reviewed regularly, this details all careers assistance that is provided and is used for future planning.
