What is Careers Week?

Year 10 students take part in a week of activities and sessions to make them think about work and their future careers.
During Careers Week students listened to guest speakers from real industries and business, visiting LaTrobe University and NMIT.
As well as all the information all of the Year 10 students worked in small teams to create their own board game.

Work Experience is when Year 10s go to work for a week at a workplace of their choice. They stepped out of their comfort zones working in all types of different places like Coles, Office Works, Target, Subway, GH Music, Mill Park Library, Woolworths and more.
