Careers Education

Lakeview Senior College is committed to assisting students in exploring and investigating career pathway options. This is an ongoing process which begins in Year 10 and continues throughout higher education. Every student participates in a Pathways program for one hour per week where they spend some of this time developing their knowledge and understanding of the education, training and employment options available to them. Students are provided with one-on-one careers guidance and a personalised career pathway, which a careers practitioner revises annually. We aim to support students in developing skills, behaviours and capabilities to effectively manage their careers and transition.
