At Emmaus our students have the opportunity to speak to our experienced Careers Adviser. It is here that students will find and gather information about Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training as well as work opportunities.
Students are encouraged to meet with the Careers Adviser to discuss their many post school options and preparation for a successful contribution to the world of work.
Specific programs are developed to assist students with a variety of post school options, such as the Western Sydney Careers Expo, Western Sydney University Fast Forward Program, ACU Step Up Into Teaching (Selected Year 12 students participate in the program that gives them one unit towards their HSC and two courses to their undergraduate education degree program at ACU) and Uni Step Up – Health Science.
Tailored Work Experience Programs are developed to meet the needs of individual students. Services provided by the Careers Adviser include:
- one-to-one interviews
- small group discussions
- resume writing, job seeking and interview skills
- student directed online careers investigation
- support with the UAC process
- University scholarship applications
- University alternative entry schemes
- preparation for Apprenticeships and Traineeships
- Vocational Education and Training applications and employment applications
- HSC subject selections.
There are so many options available for students to explore and develop their career. For students who would prefer a change from full-time study there is a range of excellent pathways available including an Australian Apprenticeship, voluntary work or starting your own business.

Whichever option students choose, the Careers Adviser at Emmaus Catholic College can help them find the information they need to start this new stage of their life.
