Vocational & Careers Education

“The best way to predict your future is to create it”, Abraham Lincoln

St Paul’s College is committed to assisting students in their pathways and career development to discover and harness their individual interests and talents.  Career education at St Paul's centres around research, immersion and experience.

Preparation is everything. St Paul's is committed to starting discussions with our students in Year 10 about their future.  In Year 10, students gain access to our "Careers Tools School Website” and individual student subscriptions to “The Careers Department”, which provides them with the first steps to discover and learn about post school study and employment pathways. Students are also invited to participate in a varied work experience program.

In Years 11 and 12, regular Career Counselling Sessions are held with our Careers Adviser, Ms Flanigan, guiding them to explore their talents and interests. Senior students are engaged in a variety of careers discussions and are given a wide array of opportunities to hear from guest speakers, attend specialist industry career expos, and visit local TAFE and tertiary institutions.

Meet Jamie, who graduated in 2018 and is now in her second year at Melbourne University studying a Bachelor of Agriculture Science, majoring in Plant and Soil Science.  "St Paul's has such a lovely nurturing community that focuses on belonging and fostering student growth and academic achievement. I really felt the teachers were such a positive influence on my education and I felt that they totally supported, equipped, and guided me to pursue Agricultural Science at Melbourne University".
