Welcome back to Term 3. It is usually the busiest term, aside from Term1 with Work Experience, for the Future Pathways Department.
A Careers and Information Night will be held on the 5 August for Year 9 students going into Year 10 and Year 12 students.
This is a night that focuses on Year 9-10 transition and Year 12, together with a range of career exhibitors, for parents and students to discuss careers and course options.
Presentations will be given by Rob Steffler and myself. Rob Steffler will present to the year 9 students and parents and I will give a presentation on QTAC admissions for 2015-16 to Year 12 parents and students.
This night is invaluable as a range of exhibitors, including Universities, Christian Training institutions and private providers are present for parents and students to speak with.
It is a night that can highlight pathways into traineeships and consolidate tertiary course choices for 2016.
Additionally Heads of Department are available for parents and students to consult, to clarify subject choices for 2016.
The Annual Sunshine Coast Careers Market was held 21 July at the USC, which followed the Tertiary Studies Careers Expo held on July 18 and 19 at the RNA grounds in Brisbane.
David Heyworth and I took our Year 10 students and they found it a valuable experience in assisting them with course and career choices, particularly after completing their research and school based careers program, which focused on the My Future website.

I would like to highlight the University of the Sunshine Coast’s ‘Imaginarium & Open Day’ on Sunday 9 August. It looks set to be an exciting and inspiring opportunity for a variety of ages from Upper Primary students upwards with not only all the aspects you would expect of an open day (Senior students will be able to obtain course information and faculty representatives will be available to speak with) but additionally a creative and stimulating range of interactive activities that will appeal across the board. You might join a tour of specialist facilities in your area of interest and discover a career you love, join the ‘Global Village’, indulge in the fun and games in the Adventure Zone or have the chance to win a $10,000 trip of a lifetime joining USC researchers at one of their incredible international research sites (Borneo, Tonga or Cambodia).
