Pathways to career success

​Alex Harding, Head of Department, Senior Pathways, Redcliffe State High School with Year 11 students.

For many secondary students, planning their future and finding their way through the maze of study and career options can be challenging, but students at Redcliffe State High School are pursuing their study and work aspirations through individualised Senior Education and Training (SET) plans.

Deputy Principal Susan Linde says their career education and SET planning starts in the junior secondary years and is an important part of each student’s education.

Ms Linde said, "SET planning enables students to explore their own interests in order to understand their preferred ways of working and identify the type of career they wish to pursue.

"Students then determine subject or course choices for their senior years and tertiary studies that will help them to achieve their work and study goals.

"They can then look at study options to meet their individual needs, such as flexible study timetables."

Senior Schooling Head of Department Daniel McKennariey said, “If their interest lies in the automotive field, we develop a study schedule that allows time away from school to attend a relevant TAFE course.

"We are as flexible as our students need us to be, providing opportunities for them to work towards their chosen career.

"Our approach keeps students engaged in their senior studies and contributes to their future success.”
