Students to gain career tips
By NATALIE PEUTnataliep@gladstoneobserver.com.au
CHOOSING a career path can be quite frightening, especially when you have only just finished school.
Local high schools have combined to inform students of the transition from high school to their career choice.
Toolooa State High School guidance counsellor Brendan Burke said local principals from around the region had joined to provide a Careers Pathway information evening tonight, for students and parents.
'The night is set to provide information to students on the range of career paths available to them,' he said.
'The topic covered include tertiary studies, further education, training and employment.'
Mr Burke said the evening was focused primarily on year 12 students, but he also encouraged the year 10s and 11s to attend.
'The information which will be provided will be highly relevant to their career decisions,' he said.
He said the event was not only for the students, but also the parents. "The night will provide parents and their children with information, while also having representatives from various organisatins,'' Mr Burke said.
'We will have people from the Gladstone Area Group Apprentices, TAFE, Central Queensland University, Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre and Jobs Pathway program.'
