Dream and Discover - Year 7 and Year 8 Careers

Career development can help Year 7 and 8 students manage the transition to secondary school. 
At this stage, students are already developing an early sense of “career” through their existing and aspirational life, learning and work roles.

Career development helps students link ideas about preparation, exploration, self-awareness and decision making to real life situations – including transitions to, through and from school.

Here at Marist College we are developing a 'schoolwide' approach to career development.

High-quality career development that engages students is embedded within the school's curriculum.
It is provided through a school-wide integrated approach, where links are made between the student career management competencies, other curriculum areas and the key competencies.
Career development programme content is reviewed, evaluated and improved to ensure the needs of all students are being met to support successful engagement in school and transition to the secondary school environment.

Having a school-wide, integrated approach to career development means all staff:
  • recognise career development is a shared responsibility
  • contribute to career development within the school.
Marist College is committed to developing and fine tuning it's approach to careers. 

Whanau staff have an important role in engaging with the students and helping them to begin thinking about the idea of a 'career' and what that might look like.
