Last year, we introduced Pathway Partners, seeking parents
from the community who can help us provide our College Years students with
advice, guidance and experience regarding potential career pathways.
Current students are part of a generation where one in two
people will have a degree and individuals will average 15 jobs and five careers
over their lifetime. We believe that to
help prepare students for life after school, they need to be aware of a range
of different workplaces, understand how to work with people of all ages and
have experience interacting with adults in the work environment. It seems that even the professions of the
future – that have not yet been created – will still need people who can work
with other people!
With that in mind, TACAPS will be hosting three career Insights sessions this term with guest speakers form a range of industries.
