Pathways & Partnerships
Nowra Anglican College recognises that career development is a lifelong process that is unique for every individual and is therefore committed to supporting students at the College to become active and effective managers of their career through a comprehensive education program that contributes to the development of their career. Research indicates, that today’s generation will change careers five times and two times before they are thirty, therefore it is integral that we focus on enabling students to manage their own career development and foster lifelong learning.
The Pathways and Partnerships Development Officer (Careers Advisor) at the College aims to assist students to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to support them in their studies and in their transition from school to further education training or the workplace. The Careers Advisor also liaises with Pastoral Leaders and teaching staff in the delivery of career lessons, coordination of career focused workshop and presenters and attendance at career expos and events.
Community & Industry
Nowra Anglican College recognises the importance of developing strong community links, the development of collaborative partnerships with business, community groups and training organisations creates a learning environment that is relevant and engaging and increases student’s connections within the local community.
The partnerships are broad and diverse and extend across all curriculum areas ranging from guest speakers in the classroom to industry visits. The College values the importance of partnerships and the benefits they provide to students at the College: create opportunities for learning beyond the classroom, create opportunities to bring expertise into the classroom, make classroom learning more meaningful to students by connecting learning to real life applications, cater for different learning styles and broaden and deepen learning experiences.
Partnerships are integral in providing students with the necessary links to the community to assist in their transition from school to further education, training and or the workplace. The College has connections with Universities and training organisations to assist students with their career development. Connections with the local council, business chamber, Department of Defence and Professional Industry bodies are pivotal in providing students with hands-on, experiential learning to make stronger linkages between education and employment.
The College has a ‘Careers Space’ which is located in the mezzanine section at H Block that contains information on a myriad of careers, including University, TAFE and Private College course guides. All students are encouraged to visit the “Careers Space” to access the range of career related information and talk to the Careers Advisor.
