At Lourdes Hill College, our careers education program aims to help our students develop an awareness of their individual interests, skills, abilities and values and to identify how these may be related to potential future career options.

The program seeks to work in conjunction with the College’s academic mentoring program in order to provide students with a holistic approach to planning their career outcomes based upon their learning goals and academic progress.

The development of knowledge, skills and attitudes through learning experiences help students to have the capacity to make informed decisions about school and post-school options and seek to enable a successful transition into their post-secondary pathway.

The world of work is changing rapidly and as such, it’s vital that students are aware of the benefit of multiskilling and adaptability. We seek to enable our students to understand that career education is not a one-off event but part of a lifelong process. The careers program at LHC also aims to equip students with the capability to prepare for this and understand the variety of further education and training opportunities.

The basic framework of the college’s Careers program is as follows:

  • Years 7-8 focus on Self-Awareness
  • Years 9-10 focus on Career Options
  • Years 11-12 focus on Choosing Pathways

The Careers department ensures that students have opportunities to engage in numerous events, workshops and presentations and have access to a wide variety of resources.

These include:

  • Individual Career Counselling sessions
