At Armadale ESC, students from Year 7 – Year 13 participate in Career Education to assist them to make informed decisions about their own possible career path through a range of planned learning experiences. These include developing the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to work effectively in the workplace and make effective decisions about their futures. Each semester, the Career Pathway Plan for each student is revised and is crucial for Year 10-13 as these plans provide key information in relation to the types of work placements offered. This information is also used to assist the student decide on which pathway is more appropriate, including Traineeships/Apprenticeships or a Nationally Recognised Certificate Course from a range of industries including Computing, Horticulture, Retail, Manufacturing, Transport & Logistics, Hospitality and Construction to name a few. The certificate courses are run through schools and overseen by the VET (Vocational Education and Training) in Schools program. All students who achieve VET units of competency in accordance with the requirements of the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) as part of their school program have these competencies recorded on their Statement of Results.
