This website has been created for Calrossy Anglican School students, parents or teachers who seek advice and information to help with student’s careers transitions. The transition of our students may follow any or all of the three distinct stages, they are:
- Personal Discovery (self-discovery, personality types, interests, abilities, hobbies, etc) The personal discovery stage helps students learn more about themselves, what their strengths and interests are and equally important, what their weaknesses are and we introduce student personal discovery to the world of careers.
- Career Discovery (applying the discovery of one-self and linking to what’s out there in the world of careers) The career discovery stage begins the link between our students as people and the world of careers in terms of the opportunities, the diversity and helping our students start to explore a career they will love.
- Pathway Discovery (taking the known career interests and establishing the pathways to get there) After discovering the careers our students will love, we work with students to develop their road map to get there. What education and training is required, where, how long, the extras along the way like taking a gap year, the internship, etc.
For more details on the three stages, please see the careers-pyramid and refer to the relevant tabs on the Calrossy Careers Website.
Students at Calrossy are enthused about their futures and take a keen interest in discovering where their personal interests may lead them into the future. The Calrossy Career Advisor helps students to become well informed, because informed students make well informed decisions.
