Career Support for Students

Students from Turramurra High School go on to a wide variety of university courses and careers spanning Medicine, Law, Engineering  and Veterinary Sciences to International Studies and Communications to Business and Economics courses as well as Fine Arts and Humanities courses.

The Turramurra High School Careers Centre operates within the school library between the hours of 8.00 am to 3.30 pm. Comprehensive careers information is available to all students and can be found in the Careers Centre as well as in the Library (Senior Study area).

Our students are kept informed with the latest information and opportunities via email and interactive online learning courses.  Formal career lessons are taught to Year 10, to encourage students to begin the process of career decision-making and to equip students with basic employment seeking skills.

Class time is also devoted to discussion about senior courses and the structure of the ATAR. All year 10 students complete formal class assessments as part of the compulsory Careers Program.

As an official Partner School of Macquarie University, we have close links to many of their programs. There are also opportunities for our Year 12 students to apply for the School Recommendation Scheme enabling early acceptance to University courses.

With a strong work experience program, careers and subject selection counselling and specific careers lessons as an integral part of our Year 10 teaching and learning program, we are passionate about supporting every student to manage their transition to further education and help them to make informed decisions about their future.
