Careers and pathways
Kew High School Careers website
Our school has a dedicated careers website where parents and students can explore career pathways and options.
Course and careers counselling
The Careers Centre contains an extensive careers library and offers support and careers advice to all students. As well as offering a full-time Careers Advisory Service, a Managed Individual Pathways Advisor works in the school two days a week.
Year 9 Careers Advisory Service
As part of the Careers Advisory Service, all Year 9 students are given access to the online career discovery tool, the Morrisby test. Following the analysis of their Morrisby career assessment, students receive one-on-one careers counselling with an external accredited career development practitioner.
Year 10 Managed Individual Pathways
At Kew High School, a range of initiatives and programs have been implemented to keep young people engaged in their education. Managed Individual Pathways (MIPs) are one such initiative. With the assistance of a transition adviser, students are guided through the development of an individual plan for their effective transition through education, training and future employment. Students can also receive further counselling from the Careers Counsellor after undergoing vocational guidance.
Work experience forms an integral part of the career development process. Our Year 10 students take part in a work experience program that is designed to provide insights into industries and workplaces that students may be interested in pursuing post school.
Work experience also helps students gain an understanding of the work environment and employer expectations, as well as providing increased self-understanding, maturity, independence, and self-confidence.
Years 11 and 12
Senior School students are able to access counselling with the Careers Counsellor at any time upon request.
Career pathways for all students in Year 12 are revisited in one-on-one sessions with the Careers Counsellor. In addition, students are followed up after leaving school and advice and support is available if required.
At Kew High School, our careers team is dedicated to helping students pursue their passions and create meaningful pathways that will help them achieve their goals.
Regular weekly Careers News bulletins are posted on the Q Portal on the Careers page, which students and parents can readily access. For their convenience, the Career News bulletins are sent directly to all Years 10, 11 and 12 students via their school email account. These bulletins provide information about upcoming careers-focused events, including information sessions and expos.
