Mater Dei College offers our Year 10 – 12 VET Pathway Students the opportunity to explore their future careers via the Careerlink program. Students are able to complete a Certificate in their chosen field and / or complete workplace learning in collaboration with industry.

Both the VET Certificate and the workplace learning enable students to gain credit towards Secondary Graduation.

Careerlink is offered as one of or 6 subjects to General or VET pathway students. Students go out every Tuesday to either Tafe to complete their certificate or work placement within industry. Students will have a Careerlink class on their timetable where they are able to extend their learning in Careers and/or study for work missed at school from Tuesdays.

Students can choose from a large range of Certificates: including Pre-Apprenticeships in the Trade industry (Electrical, Plumbing, Automotive, Construction), Traineeships in Beauty or Health and Certificate IV’s in Education Support and or Business to name a few.
These opportunities can result in offers of further study at Tafe, as an alternative entry to University, apprenticeships, traineeships and employment.
