Following a number of requests for Tutor referrals, we have contacted some of our past students and as a result, are starting to compile a list of possible contacts.
If you are seeking some tutoring support through your VCE, this year or next, see Mrs Ramsay in the Careers Centre for further details.
Beyond school study guide
The Department of Education and Training (DET) has produced the Beyond School study guide - the Guide is a digital resource for year 10-12 students providing information about Australian Government assistance so they are able to make informed choices about their future studies. There are 9 resources included:
- Three tertiary education explainer infographics:
- Higher education or VET? – Provides information about each sector so that students can understand what type/level of qualification they may need to get to the career they want.
- Pathways to university – Provides examples of ways that students can access higher education (e.g. bridging course; VET/sub-bachelor studies; ATAR) and points them to apply for uni via their relevant TAC.
- Choose your own higher education adventure – A flow chart for higher education students to select options that apply to them and find which HELP loan is most suitable for their study choices.
- One HELP loan comparison ‘cheat sheet’ – a table to compare each different loan and provide information about when a student might access each one.
- Five fact sheets – one for each of the four HELP loan schemes (HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP, OS-HELP, SA-HELP) and one for the VET Student Loans program, that provide basic information about each.
The guide can be downloaded at the Study Assist website.
