It has been a busy few weeks in the careers department with a number of events having taken place. Here is a quick update of all of the wonderful activities our students have taken part of….. 

Year 12 excursion to VCE and Careers Expo  

On Thursday 12th May, all Year 12 students travelled to Flemington racecourse to attend the VCE and Careers expo. At the expo students were exposed to a variety of different University, TAFE, employers, and apprenticeship agencies, as well as getting the opportunity to attend some VCE lectures. It was a great day for students to begin planning their pathway for next year and beyond, and collect all of the information they might need to help make some decisions in the coming months.



Year 8 Futureseekers program  

21 of our Year 8 students have begun the Futureseekers program. This program is being run by the Smith Family, and allows students to explore their interests, knowledge and skills, and learn how these are applicable in the work force. As well as this the program is exposing students to a variety if different occupations which they may not be otherwise aware of. The program is running for six weeks, and I look forward to seeing our students develop over the course of the program.




Women in trade and tech expo 

On Monday 16th May I had the pleasure if taking 15 of our students to the inaugural Women in trade and tech expo, held at the Melbourne convention and exhibition centre. This event was aimed to expose young women to the myriad of occupations and pathway the have in the trade, tech and STEM industries. It was the first time this event was run, and it was great to see our students getting involved in all aspects of the expo.




LSC Careers Expo 

On Thursday 19th May the annual Lalor Secondary College careers expo was held in the Drama centre for our Year 10 and 11 students. Much like the Year 12 excursion, our Year 10 and 11 students were able to meet and talk to representatives from a variety of different university, tafe, apprenticeship and workplace providers. As well as this our Year 12 VCAL class were showcasing their VET skills, and were able to explain to their peers about their own pathway journeys. It was great to see so many of our students asking questions and interacting with the representatives on the day. I hope they have used this opportunity to start thinking about VCE subjects they may undertake, and also in planning a pathway beyond Year 12! ”
