  • Yrs 9-12: Labour Market education advice - We know that the Labour Market right now is not 'normal' as a result of COVID-19. For the first time ever, over 1 million Australians are unemployed. Many industries have taken a massive employment hit, and sadly, 15-24yr olds have been hit harder than most in finding work. This means that the transition you have to make from school to tertiary education is more critical than ever, because you need to make sure you're looking at what you enjoy & can build a career around, rather than where that training is! To support this, information has just been shared from the Federal Government talking about outcomes for those who gain qualifications in VET (apprenticeships & TAFEs) and those who gain qualifications in higher education (university). Have a look at the reality of the outcomes for both options and remember - it's your choice for your future. Training status & prestige doesn't equal employment.

Career Development Daily News Fix: Monday Sep 7 (Posted: 07/09/2020)

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

Today, a special focus on key takeaways from the recently released 2020 Graduate Outcome Survey, focusing on employment outcomes with various university degrees. Released in August, this information tells you what adults are doing with both their undergraduate or postgraduate qualifications, both 4mths ('short-term') & 3yrs ('medium-term') after finishing study (Surveys taken in both 2017 & 2020).

The information provided can - AND SHOULD - help to further inform your post-school career choices. To access the full report,

  • Yrs 9-12: Emerging Occupations in Australia Cluster 4: 'Health' - Occupations in this cluster reflect changing specialisations and care practices in the health sector.All pages show employment from 2015-2019, average weekly wage, demographics (age, gender etc.), and qualifications & skills needed:
    • Biostatisticians: Biostatisticians develop and apply biostatistical theory and methods to the study of life sciences. To learn more, click here.
    • Nurse Liasion: A Nurse Liaison fosters the relationship between patients and the facilities providing their care.

  • Yr12: Important reminder regarding university places -  A few students have spoken to the Career Development Dept. about what the 'knock-on' effect will be for places in university courses because of the potential drop in overseas students coming in. We need to make a point very clear about this:
    • Will there be more spaces available in courses next year because of a lack of international students?
      • Yes...and no.
    • Why yes?
      • Fairly obvious - less students from overseas means more spaces for Australian students.
    • So why no?
      • The Federal Government only allocates a certain amount of money for Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) to each course at each uni (this is the percentage of the total yearly course cost that the Fed. Govt. pays for applicable students). From what we have heard so far, this amount isn't changing for 2021, meaning that the same amount of students will come into a course with a CSP. Those who don't qualify for a CSP (such as international students) have to pay full cost.
    • What's this mean for me?
      • If you're a CSP student (confirm at Study Assist by clicking here), nothing. However, there'll potentially be more spaces available...if you're willing to pay full fees (in excess of $20,000 a year - refer to fee changes document sent out at start of T3 by clicking here for exact prices for 2021).
  • Yr12: Applying for SEAS and Scholarships in Year 12 RMIT webinars - Has your Year 12 education been impacted by circumstances outside of your control? Are you considering applying for VTAC's Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) or maybe for one of RMIT's 2000+ scholarships? Join RMIT for a special panel discussion to learn more about the opportunities and support available for SNAP school students (that's us!) via SEAS and RMIT scholarships. The panel of current RMIT students will share their experiences of applying for SEAS and scholarships when they were in Year 12. They will share challenges they faced in preparing their applications, how they managed the process and some top tips they wish they'd known when they were in Year 12. These webinars are available to register now, and they run from tomorrow (Sep 2) through to Sep 16. To register, click here.
  • Yr12: Services Australia School Leaver Resources - Over the next few News Feed posts, we will be sharing a range of resources developed by Services Australia (the Federal Govt. agency that runs both Centrelink & Medicare) designed specifically for Year 12 school-leavers. We encourage you to download each of them, and take advantage of the information provided in each, to help you with your transition from school. Today's resource is entitled 'Centrelink information for students'. You can download by clicking here.

  • Yr12 - Important update for Monash Domestic Medicine Applicants - Monash Uni has had to make some changes to the MMI interview process for 2021 entry in order to meet the VTAC offer rounds timeline. Most interviews will now be held in mid-December 2020 and selection for these interviews will be based on a ranking of applicants’ UCAT test scores only. Importantly, a second round of interviews will be held in early January 2021, for Victorian and rural interstate applicants. Selection will be based on a combination of final Year 12 aggregate scores and UCAT test scores as per the usual process. Interview dates will be posted on the Important Dates page and are subject to change. Applicants should make themselves available for all published dates if you wish to remain eligible for Medicine at Monash. Interviews will follow the same scenario-based, multi-station format, but are highly likely to be conducted online via Zoom with fewer stations than in previous years i.e., to include 6 virtual stations. There is no additional preparation required for the interviews (ie. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON ‘PREP’ CLASSES) and applicants selected for an interview will be briefed accordingly. If shortlisted, you will be invited to attend an interview via e-Mail (please check all spam email folders) and will be required to log in to an online system to self-allocate a time to attend. Once the system closes, changes will not be permitted, and late requests cannot be accommodated. More information regarding updates on admission requirements can be found by clicking here.
