Supporting Year 12 completers to realise their dreams
Do you have a young person, an extended family member or family friend that has graduated recently from Grade 12? Leaving school after so many years of commitment can be both exciting and a little scary. Sometimes it takes a past student a few months to figure out what they want to do, this 'down time' can often impact on their motivation levels and attitude.
There are currently lots of opportunities available for study, work and training – it's just knowing how to access all of this information.
At Kedron SHS we have a designated Link and Launch Co-Ordinator who can assist in navigating a wide range of options in consultation with the past student (whether they attended Kedron SHS or another school). She will organise a one on one catch up so as to discover their goals, their strengths and current skills and help them to create a future pathway. In addition, she can offer specific advice on resumes, cover letters, job searching, interview preparation & presentation and current labour market and educational destinations overall.
Pathways can include (but are not limited to) part time work (if the past student is currently studying), full time employment, Apprenticeship and Traineeship opportunities, linkages to government and federal workforce participation programs, Free TAFE for Year 12 leavers and community and health referrals all based on the needs of the individual.
For additional information don't hesitate to contact, or pass along the details to your young person:
Rochelle Laracy, Link and Launch Co-Ordinator
Phone or SMS: 0460 034 298 or 3630 3338
