Students at TIGS experience a range of formal and informal career development and orientation activities during their time in the Senior School.
These activities range from introductory talks about secondary and tertiary school study and subject options as part of the Year 7 Homework and Study Skills Program and in Year 8 as preparation for their Year 9 and 10 Subject Selections.
In Year 9 students start more formal career activities with year seminars and preparation for their work experience program in Year 10.
In addition to this, all Year 9 students undergo individual career testing using the Self Directed Search developed by John Holland. Each student receives an individual report outlining career options, possible subject options for their Higher School Certificate in Years 11 and 12 based on their test results and an Occupation Finder containing further career ideas.
In Year 10 students are provided with more regular career and Higher School Certificate preparation with students making their subject choices and participating in a one-week work experience program in this year.
In Years 11 and 12 students have regular meetings with the Careers Advisor and individual career counselling sessions are held during Year 12.
Year 11 and 12 also have the opportunity to meet with many outside specialists, career and tertiary education providers, former students and other speakers who come in to advise, discuss or talk about their area of work.
