Our Career Counsellor is one of the best and most knowledgeable in New Zealand. She spends time with every student from Year 9 upwards and, when students become a little older, she will spend a long time helping them to make their future choices.
In Year 11 all students complete self-assessment based on Holland's theory of career development which very simply put, aligns 6 possible personality strengths with 6 areas of work. The assessment gives students a 3-letter code (RIASEC Code) highlighting the 3 areas they are most compatible with. This code is used as the basis for ongoing career discussions with the student. Students can research possible occupations based on their RIASEC code using O*NET OnLine
