Keywords: College, Careers Centre

The Careers Centre at our college has a nationally respected reputation for doing an excellent job of preparing students for their future. Every student is encouraged to move on to further education or employment and the Careers Centre works with students on both an individual and group basis to ensure this happens. The expertise within the Careers Centre ensures that students receive the best up-to-date service.

We also operate a carefully structured career education programme which enables students at all levels to explore their career development. Students are also invited to taste employment and training opportunities through the Gateway Programme to aid their career decision-making process.

The Careers Centre is packed with pamphlets which outline tertiary education, scholarships, employment and career opportunities throughout New Zealand. There are computers for students to use when researching information and staff are always on hand to help. The computer software programme Career Quest is available for students to use and it will help them assess their interests and the skills they have developed leading them into future career options. Students are given help with CVs, applications and interview techniques.

The teachers in the whanau mentor students individually and are the people who know the students the best, remaining associated with the students and their families for the five years they are at One Tree Hill College.
