Careers

Careers information and advice is made available to all students at Mercy College from Year 7 through to Year 12.

Parents are also welcome to contact the Careers Adviser to discuss student career options.

An extensive Careers Programme is provided to Year 10 students prior to their course selections for Year 11. 

Following initial selections, students have individual interviews with the Careers Adviser and the Year Co-ordinator to ensure that flexibility exists to maximize career options at the end of Year 12.

 

Throughout the year, the Careers Adviser conducts information sessions with senior students.

Special lunchtime information sessions are also arranged, providing students with an opportunity to gain in-depth information and speak directly with tertiary representatives from universities, TAFE and private colleges.

A regular Careers newsletter email is sent to all senior students, together with invitations for career events such as expos, information evenings and university open days.
