Careers Education

Careers Counsellor
The school provides the services of a full time Careers Counsellor, who works with individual students to guide them in subject selection and career choices and also with year level groups to keep the students informed about opportunities that exist within their areas of interest and about trends within a broad range of industries.
 
Primary students are also taught careers education at various stages of the primary school experience. Advising the girls about preparation and requirements for aspects of life at work or at tertiary institutions is a key role of the Careers Counsellor who works with the students to assist them to develop skills that are essential to their success in the world beyond school. A great deal of time is spent with senior students relating to their academic performance in preparation of achieving the goals they have set for themselves and providing girls with the information they require for the courses or careers they wish to pursue.
 
SET Plans
The Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan is a key component of the Queensland Government's Education and Training Reforms for the Future initiative.
 
The SET Plan initiative formalises good career planning practices, with each student responsible for creating and updating her own SET Plan which maps out how she intends to work towards a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), a Certificate III vocational qualification and/or a viable work option.
 
In order to develop a meaningful and hence truly useful SET Plan, students need to engage in self-reflection and career exploration processes. The school's career sessions and activities are intended to support such processes. Each student will, however, need to take responsibility for driving her own self-reflection and career exploration processes.
 
The SET Plan contains a SET Plan Guide, an outline of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), a set of subject related occupational charts, and two Queensland Studies Authority (QSA) publications - Preparing for the senior phase of learning: What next? and Planning your pathway to a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
