Why are Careers Expos so important?
An article from Skills Road: https://goo.gl/BcTifs
What are careers expos?
Careers expos and markets give students, parents and job-seekers a chance to find out first-hand from careers advisors, apprenticeship centres, registered training organisations, universities and employers about the latest career pathways. Essentially, they are a one-stop shop for professional careers advice.
Why should my child attend?
- Careers expos give your child the chance to make direct contact with experts from tertiary institutions teaching exciting subjects. Industry insiders can give personal advice on which courses or training pathways are best for certain occupations.
- Career expos often offer practical demonstrations giving potential recruits the chance to observe.
Career expos give your child a unique opportunity to hear first-hand about what it’s really like to work and study in a range of fields. This could be the stimulus they need to begin making a career decision!
Universities and academic advisors are also on hand to give advice about higher education.
Choosing a career path whilst at school can be overwhelming. An idea of the type of career path you would like to follow will help guide you through school and provide a focus or a goal to aim for. The best place to start is to examine your strengths and interests. We tend to do perform better when we focus on these.

CAREERS AND STRENGTHS
Why Knowing Your Strengths Matters
Why strengths matter when it comes to work.
When it comes to choosing a career, the way a role enables us to use our strengths matters. As people who go to work and use their strengths every day experience far more engagement and satisfaction than those who don’t.
Take time to talk about the strengths in your children. By beginning to understand our top strengths we can start to think about whether different careers and opportunities will enable us to flourish or flounder.
SURVIVING YEAR 12
Year 12 can be both challenging and exciting. During your final year of school, there are lots of strategies you can use to keep things in perspective and to manage any stresses that come along.
PUT THE YEAR IN PERSPECTIVE
There are many people that can help. Students are encouraged to talk to their subject teachers, form teachers, mentors, parents and friends. The final year of secondary school is an important year, but it will not be the most important year of your life. Your future will not be determined by what happens at the end of it.

Fremantle Campus Early Offer Program 2017
The University of Notre Dame Australia introduced the Early Offer Program in 2006 to reward the achievements of outstanding Year 12 students by simplifying their access to courses at our University. One of its benefits to the recipients has been that it has allowed them to face their final WACE examinations with reduced stress and added confidence.
Students who are selected for the Early Offer Program should be able to demonstrate that they:
· have exceptional personal or leadership qualities and are motivated to study;
· are active members of their church, school and/or community; and
· have a predicted ATAR (based on their best 4 eligible ATAR subjects) of:
· 93 or above if they applying to study Bachelor of Physiotherapy or Bachelor of Laws; or
· 90 or above if they are applying to study any other course.
Students must ensure that their school completes the school nomination component of their Early Offer Program application form, and that they submit their application form along with:
· Year 11 school reports and first semester of Year 12 school report (compulsory);
· personal statement of approximately 300 words outlining personal qualities and motivation to study their preferred course at Notre Dame (compulsory);
· evidence of Australian citizenship or residency status (such as a certified copy of their Australian passport, Australian citizenship certificate, Australian birth certificate, permanent resident visa or any visa with a copy of it from their passport) (compulsory);
· other relevant supplementary information (written references, awards or certificates) (optional).
Notre Dame encourages Year 12 students from all secondary schools to apply for the Early Offer Program.
While Notre Dame provides higher education within a context of Catholic faith and values, it welcomes students of all faiths or no faith at all. Applications must be submitted by the end of July.
Australia’s largest regional university with over 35,000 students, 20+ locations, 300+ TAFE and University qualifications, flexible study options, practical learning experiences and pathway options.
