Entering year 11 and 12 can be daunting. Selecting the right subjects; subjects that suit you, subjects you will need for the years ahead – might leave you feeling confused, uncertain or alone.
But the Trafalgar High School staff are here for you. We've been in your shoes; we understand what it's like to be making these decisions. We can help you all the way.
Senior Pathways contains the information you need to explore your options for VCE and Vocational programs offered by Trafalgar High School.
The VCE and Vocational programs are carefully planned each year taking into account the latest information regarding possible career and tertiary education options. Senior school students are provided with a range of programs to guide them in their career choices including Pathways Days, (where these are possible) and the Managed Individual Pathways Program.
Please read the material carefully. A good starting point is to decide what career area you would like to pursue after finishing your VCE or VCAL. The course counselling process at the school will help you with your decisions. This involves you working with your parents or guardians, your teachers, a course counsellor and with Ms Gabrielle Evans, our pathways advisor.
Senior Pathways pages provide valuable information to match your choice to the most appropriate program in your final years of school.
WHERE TO START
- Use the top menu bar to navigate to the subject pages that interest you. Take your time.
- Investigate the subject;
- Watch the video
- Click on the green 'Explore Career Pathways' button/s on the right hand side. Consider some of the paths that the subject may lead to. These are just some ideas; if you can't find the career you are interested in, talk to the Careers Team.
- Review the 'Units of Study' section, which outline the course content, broken down into units.
- Units 1 & 2 are generally undertaken in Year 11.
- Units 3 & 4 in Year 12.
- Check the 'Entry' criteria, in the left sidebar to ensure that you qualify to enter the course. If you are uncertain, talk to the Careers Team.
- Review your prefered choices.
- You've probably been through multiple pages and read a massive amount of subject information. Sometimes, this can be confusing. As you narrow your preferences down, go back to the subjects you are most interested in and read everything about them again.
- Watch the video again.
- Make sure you have checked ALL the information at least a second time, and that it offers what you are looking for.
- Contact the Careers Team with any questions.
