Choosing your subjects
Choosing what subjects you take in Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 is an important step in managing your career, particularly if you are in Year 11 as the choices you make may determine which courses you can experience.

2. Think about your abilities – can you do well in these subjects?
3. Think about your interest levels – will you have the motivation?
4. Weigh up any differences between interests, abilities and career ideas

The ABC Subject Selection Checklist
- When you have made your choices, follow this simple checklist:

All students in Year 10 are required to participate in the College’s Work Experience program. The purpose of the Work Experience program is to provide guidance for students from school to working life and to enable students to test tentative career choices against the realities of the workplace. Work Experience assists students in their decision making about future study, training and career options, creates a network of contacts for future employment options and enables students to appreciate the relevance of their school work.
