Career Development/Exploring

At Catholic Cathedral College, we provide a range of career advice and support for our learners from years 10 to years 13. Senior career interviews are held yearly for our year 12 and 13 Ākonga (students) with Year 11 and Year 10 supported with subject choice and information sessions on careers.

Senior ākonga are given the opportunity to take part in exploring many varied career options at the yearly Canterbury Careers Expo. Ākonga considering tertiary study will have the opportunity to attend tertiary provider's presentations at school along with taking part in university campus tours and open days.

Navigating the World of Careers

We work alongside our teaching team to ensure support and guidance are provided to our learners. Encouraging our young people to use the career tools provided to seek out information on their career journey will enable their independence in decision-making and make the transition from secondary school to their next step in life more manageable.
