Prep them well for VCE

Student Career Development

Career development is a vital part of the ongoing educational growth and development of each student

The Careers Program is designed to empower and inform students as they learn to make effective decisions about their subject choices and pathways plans in preparation for their transition to tertiary study or other post secondary options. Overnewton also encourages students to develop the skills and confidence to make numerous career decisions throughout their life. 

To assist students, the Careers Centre staff provide access to:

  • Electronic and paper-based careers information and regular newsletters
  • Career education and skill development programs
  • Subject selection assistance
  • Individualised career assessment, counselling and support
  • Careers events and activities including the annual Career Expo
  • Information and support programs for parents

Students and parents are welcome to contact the Careers Centre staff or visit the Centre located on the ground floor, Richardson Centre, Keilor Campus.

The Annual Careers Expo - Thursday 27 July, 2017

Our annual Careers Expo, held in Senior School is designed to offer students from Years 9 to 12 and their parents the opportunity to investigate a wide range of subject and career options for the ensuing years. 

As part of our subject selection process and our ongoing commitment to student career development, this event draws together the College subject faculties, tertiary institutions, parents and Old Collegians representing their areas of expertise. Our students are encouraged to explore, research, discuss and dream of their future.

This clip, compiled by Old Collegian Riley Muscat captures a glimpse of the Expo and the opportunity for our students to engage in meaningful careers conversations.
