EVENTS

Careers

Middle and Senior School students are encouraged to explore career options and the world of work.

Students are exposed to many on-campus careers events at Oakleigh Grammar such as the Careers and Employment Expo, Employer/Tertiary Speaker Sessions, Careers Morning Tea Series, Mock Interview and Resume workshops just to name a few. Students also attend careers events externally. Excursions include visits to Career and Tertiary Education expos, University and TAFE Campus Tours, Tertiary Open Days and participation in the Year 10 Work Experience program.

Guidance

Our Careers Advisor is available to assist students with course and careers advice, VCE subject selection, job applications, resume creation and mock interview practice.

The Advisor can also help Year 12 students with their VTAC applications and guidance with their post school options.

Parents/guardians are also welcome to make appointments and the door is always open to our Alumni students for further careers guidance they may require.

How it works

Each student develops a Career Action Plan as part of their career development learning journey that include a portfolio containing a resume and references, achievements and awards, as well as their career goal reflections, and their own course and career research documents. Students also create a careers account to access our careers website that provides careers resources and information, as well as access to our fortnightly careers newsletter, and part time job vacancies which are regularly advertised. Parents/guardians can also create a parent account.

At Year 10 students begin their career development by completing the Morrisby Report, a 20 page personalised report which identifies a student’s strengths, career interests and some aspects of personality. This information is blended to provide career suggestions and VCE subject suggestions for discussion with our Careers Advisor.

Regular updates on Career events and other careers information appears in a fortnightly careers newsletter located on the Oakleigh Grammar Careers website as well as the regular school-wide newsletter, Grammar News.
