Siena College offers a Career Development program that encourages and supports students to aim high and make informed decisions about their future career pathways.
Today's students are likely to change careers several times across multiples industries, therefore the skills required to manage such career development form the focus of the Careers program at Siena College.
Age appropriate Career Development activities are implemented from Years 7 to 12. The program assists students to identify their strengths, skills, abilities and allows them to explore the impact of their values on career choices.
Careers testing is available to help guide subject choices for the senior years. A fully qualified career practitioner is available to both students and parents and appointments can be booked by contacting the Careers Centre on 9835 0250 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
