The Career's Department at Woonona High School aims to provide students access to programs that are attuned to their personal attributes including interests aptitudes and abilities. Within a quality teaching framework we gather data on individual's interests and goals so that programs may be differentiated to meet individual student needs. Students undertake ‘interest inventories' as a tool to help them and to help them identify unique interests. These inventories and the subsequent dialogue they generate help the Careers Adviser target appropriate students for programs and opportunities available each school year. Students use the results to complete transition plans for life after school with goals that are aligned their interests and abilities.
The three distinct streams of students that coexist at Woonona High School, those bound for university, those aspiring for certificate or diploma level qualifications as well as those trying to crack the labour market are assisted through individual and group counselling, by having access to accurate career information regarding opportunities and trends, by availing of a Careers program that is aligned to the standards of the Australian Blueprint for Career Development and by structuring events and opportunities that allow individual students to engage in formal and informal career exploration.
The Careers' Department maintains a website; woononahighcareers.com, that is a huge receptacle of career-related resources including not just information on careers and tertiary education but also links to the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards where students may search syllabus documents as well as past Higher School Certificate examinations. The ‘Student Secure Area' of the website has links to lesson plans that include job searching techniques, a resume builder, practice job applications and much more.
