Students from Kingsgrove High, Kingsgrove North High and Beverly Hills Girls High have participated in a series of careers workshops to enhance their knowledge and understanding of the pathways available to them beyond school.

The Future Links Careers Week and Careers Expo was developed by Kingsgrove High to help students with post-HSC planning and the subject selection process.

Kingsgrove High careers adviser, Artemis Theodoris, said education providers, vocational training organisations and universities provided information about post-school pathways for students during the week.

“At Kingsgrove High School, we believe that career education is vital,” she said.

“Students from each year group participated in seminars focused on individual skills, strengths and future preparation.

“These sessions are essential for initiating early discussions about career pathways, helping students contextualise their learning and exploring various career options.”

Parents of Kingsgrove High students were invited to attend a session with providers to learn how to support their children for life after school.

“Our goal is to connect the skills and attributes students are developing now with their future aspirations,” Ms Thoedoris said.

“While we may not see the future, our role is to equip students to shape theirs.”
