Careers Counselling

Padua College provides a career counselling service to students and their parents. Assistance is provided by individual appointment and through the various programs offered through the college.

An appointment with the careers counsellor can help you make better informed course and career decisions by examining your approach to career planning and informing you of appropriate resources to guide your planning.

Through the Year 10 Personal and Life Skills lesson, students undertake a career education program. The program is deisgned to assist our Year 10 students to get to know themselves, their interests and their skills and to assist them to make informed career decisions before undertaking their SET (Senior Edcuation and Training) plan.
