Career News

It has been a busy start to the year for Siena Careers.  With several rounds of VTAC offers now rolling out over February, last year’s Year 12s have decisions to make about tertiary courses that require careful consideration and discussion.  We wish the Class of 2018 every success in the next step of their career journey and look forward to hearing their stories at a future Siena Careers Showcase.

I have been meeting with the current Year 12s to chat about what their career goals are and how we can best support them and provide them with the tools and resources required to make a good choice later in the year.

Parents are welcome to make an appointment with their daughter to discuss tertiary options and career pathways.  The best way to organise this is via the Siena Careers website -appointment bookings are listed under the 'For Students' tab.

The latest edition of Siena Career News features information on the National Youth Science Forum.  This is a fabulous experience for current Year 11s to apply for.  The NYSF is a twelve day residential program in Canberra where students have the opportunity to experience a tertiary institution, speak to academics and university students and participate in a variety of STEAM workshops with students from schools around Australia.

Also in this week’s Siena Career News, GAP year applications with the Australian Defence Force are now open for current Year 12 students.  Experience military training and lifestyle, gain new skills and get paid!  There are a variety of jobs available.

Monash University was the most popular tertiary destination for our Class of 2018.  The 'Inside Monash' course information sessions commence shortly, dates are listed in Siena Career News.
