At Marist College North Shore we provide an individualised service to each student who is looking to gather information and pursue study options that will lead them towards gaining a head start in achieving their chosen qualification and future career.
Our Careers Room located in the centre of the campus has an open-door policy. Students have access to a comprehensive resource library for career, tertiary and private institution information.
Each year we host a vibrant Year 10 Work Experience program that allows students to get a taste of working life and gain insight into a career that interests them. In addition to this throughout the year, Year 10 students participate in structured Career lessons. This ensures our students are better enabled to make senior subject selections and choose a path that’s right for them.
The College also participates in the Australian Taxation Office Tax File Program for Kids. Students can see Mrs Nicola Brown, our Careers Advisor, to obtain the relevant forms and information regarding this service for those wishing to gain part-time employment.
TVET is TAFE-delivered Vocational Education.
Students who choose this option of study can have it count as 2 units towards their HSC studies whilst gaining a head start in their chosen industry. Students commonly walk away at the end of Year 12 with either a TAFE Certificate II or III. Marist College North Shore is able to provide access to a variety of courses at numerous TAFE campuses across the Sydney Metropolitan area.
SBAT is School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship.
This is a great option for students who are looking to continue their secondary studies without delaying the commencement of their chosen apprenticeship or traineeship. Students can combined study, work and TAFE through a weekly cycle e.g. 1 day at TAFE, 1 day at work and 3 days at school. There are a variety of apprenticeships and traineeships available, with most being trade-focused.
The outcome of this choice of study will see a student walk away at the end of their Year 12 with their first year of their apprenticeship/traineeship achieved and their HSC certificate completed.
At Marist College North Shore, we are also able to facilitate further education for students through external course at TAFE NSW. Please refer to the TAFE NSW link to browse the courses that are available.
The College also facilitates the opportunity for our students to certify themselves in preparation for part-time work and work experience by attending RSA, RCG and White Card day courses.
