Senior schooling at Good Shepherd supports students in their decision making and steps towards independence beyond school, particularly in regard to their future education and career aspirations.
In collaboration with subject and House Home Group teachers, the Student Pathways and NTCET Coordinators ensure that students are aware of a wide range of career and educational opportunities beyond school, and support students in making decisions about what pathways and strategies are best for them.
The Pathways Coordinator can provide guidance regarding University courses and entrance requirements, prerequisite subjects and industry requirements both through careers software and personal counselling on campus and also via events such as Work Experience and work placements, careers expos, visiting industry, experts, university visits and careers camps.
Senior Students have the opportunity of attending Careers Camps for university open days in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane each year.
The Careers Facebook page is updated regularly and is a great source of information for both current and past students: https://www.facebook.com/gslccareers/

Study plans are tailored to suit student aspirations and may include Vocational training or off-campus subjects as well as those offered on site.
The NTCET and Student Pathways Coordinator operate in the Senior School building so that students have access to these services at all times.
