Facebook: @SCCareerDev   / Twitter: @SCCareerDev   / Instagram: @SCCareerDev

News & information:

  1. Yrs 7-12: Job spotlight: Education Aides - Education Aides perform non-teaching duties to assist teaching staff in schools, provide care and supervision for children in preschools, and provide assistance to Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Maori students and their teachers. You usually need a Certificate III or IV in Education Support to work as an Education Aide (VCE is similar in academic knowledge to a Certificate III); traineeships may be available. The number of people working as Education Aides (in their main job) grew strongly over the past 5 years and is expected to grow very strongly over the next 5 years from 90,500 in 2018 to 109,300 by 2023. To learn more about this in-demand career option, click here.

  2. Yr12: Monash University December round update - Monash will be making as many offers as possible to VCE students in the 2019 December Round, including offers to Monash Guarantee and SEAS eligible students. More offers will be made in January 2020 - so don’t rule out a course just because you didn’t receive an offer in December. They can’t tell you exactly what ATAR each course will go down to, as this will depend on how many applicants apply for each course. The best indicator is the Lowest Selection Rank to which an offer was made. Keep in mind, this should be used as a guide only. For more information on what's in & out of the December round at Monash, click here.

  3. Yrs 7-12: 'Using Your Degree' fact sheets: Nutrition and dietetics - A very precise field of health, and an important one. As we become more and more aware of what certain foods do to our bodies, the role of an individual with a Nutrition or Dietetics qualification become more important...and there's more than just a Nutritionist or Dietician!

  2. Yrs 9-12: Student Stories: Is there still a place for journalism studies in 2019? "I’ve always wanted to be a journalist. A sports journalist, to be specific. Unlike many of my friends throughout high school, I’d worked out what I wanted to do early on and never waivered. It just seemed I was best suited to writing — in particular, writing about sports that I had devoted a lot of my life to. When it got to year 12, I thought the obvious way forward was to study journalism at university. I wasn’t sure what to expect — what can they teach? How do they prepare us for work? As my first year of uni comes to an end, I’ve realised that it has taught me a great deal about the industry itself." To read more of this blog, click here.

News & information:

  1. Yr12: Paying for your uni costs - If you are a student who will be applicable for a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP), it helps (pardon the pun) to know what you're liable for each year. Universities are capped at how much they can charge for a particular subject, and how much that charge is, depends on what 'student contribution band' the subject sits in. This charge can be covered by HECS-HELP if you're applicable for it. To learn more about how this works, including how to work out your individual subject costs, click here for the studyassist.gov.au Student Contribution Band webpage, but below are the 2020 bands; note that it changes each year to match inflation. (EFTSL: Equivalent Full-Time Student Load ie. 4 subjects per semester; 8 per year)

  2. Yrs 9-11: 9 Questions Everyone Asks About Vocational Education And Training (VET) - So you are reaching the senior years of high school and it feels like everybody is asking you what’s next, what do you want to do, what will you study? Fair questions, but what if you don’t have the answers? You ask, ‘what even are my options?’ One option is VET, but sadly nearly 30% of students surveyed by the FYA said their school didn’t mention vocational education and training (VET) - WE DO!!! To help you understand it, the FYA have put together the straight up facts about VET. Click here to find out what it is, how it works, who to contact if you want to give it a go and which websites you should check out.

  1. Yrs 7-12: Job spotlight: Land Economists and Valuers - Land Economists and Valuers provide advice on the administration and use of land and property, and assess the value of land, property and other items such as commercial equipment and objects of art. You usually need a formal qualification in property to work as a Land Economist or Valuer.

  2. Yrs 9-12: Choosing a career? These jobs won’t go out of style - Claims that 40% of jobs in Australia won’t exist in the future are unhelpful for young people thinking about entering the workforce. The reality is some jobs will no longer exist, new jobs will be created and most jobs will undergo some form of change. The skills we need for work are changing. But, you can plan for these changes. Fears of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) wiping out future work are well founded – new technology is changing the way we work. But as the current workforce ages, future generations (ie. YOU) will have many job opportunities, if you gain the right skills. To learn more about gaining these right skills, click here.
