Careers @ Trinity

FutureT 2020 – The Careers event that went ahead in 2020!

Last year we were not able to schedule careers events as we usually would have, and adopted new approaches to running these events. We were able to share information widely about the ways training organisations and employers are communicating directly with students and their parents and increased the accessibility of course and industry information, thanks to recorded webinars and presentations widely shared on the Canvas Careers page.

At the end of last term, working with the OTU, we hosted the FutureT 2020 mentoring event for Year 12 students, using technology to connect Old Boys from their homes and places of work, with Year 12 students in their homes, and with staff here at school.

The theme of the evening was “Courage. Commit. Connect.”  Questions and conversations revolved around making decisions (have the courage to do this), working hard to achieve goals (commit to something) and developing meaningful, supportive relationships (connect with people around you). A link to watch the recorded session has been placed on the Canvas Careers page.

This was a great way to finish the school year and to mark the start of the final year of school education for our Year 12 students.  Thank you to the Old Boys who helped with this event, for their time and great advice.

Careers Programme in 2021

I am looking forward to working with your sons through our Careers Programme this year. There are many aspects to engaging with you and your sons through this programme, represented in the diagram at the top of this article. Education and support for careers and courses decisions links to the individual ‘drivers’ represented in this diagram.

The first Careers event in 2021 will be the careers profiling activity for Year 10 students which will take place next week. Parents and students have been sent information about this activity. As well, Year 11 students will engage in Careers Sessions this term where we will be looking at a tool to help them reflect on how to boost personal skills and access to information sources, to bring about a greater understanding of careers and courses.
