Tamborine Mountain College has a strong focus on preparing students for their chosen future vocation. Students in Year 10 develop Student Education and Training (SET) Plans through a dedicated careers subject. Students explore career possibilities and learn important skills such as résumé writing, application letter writing and interview skills.
Year 10 students further enhance their understanding of their desired vocation through participation in a work experience program. Chosen businesses take on College students for one week to give students an insight into the occupation. Many students use this as a stepping-stone to school-based traineeships and apprenticeships.
School-based traineeships and apprenticeships allow students from Years 10, 11 and 12 to pursue employment and training in a recognised field/industry. Certificate levels and educational credit points are achieved towards the Queensland Certificate of Education as well as traditional academic results and OP in Year 12.
There are many career pathways available for College students. The College Careers Advisor and Careers Teacher work with students, parents and the Principal to ensure that students are prepared for their chosen career path.
