The Frayne Futures program at Frayne supports all students to participate in career development experiences. Career development is the lifelong process of engaging in learning and work opportunities to achieve personal, social and economic goals.
There are no ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ answers in career development; however, students can make more-informed decisions based on the quality and quantity of information they have. Career information is gathered through a range of sources from direct experiences to conversations with others.
At Frayne, we prepare our students for lifelong learning by providing them with a range of experiences that nurture their development in all areas of their lives. We strive for our young people to participate in learning experiences that build awareness of their unique strengths and interests and encourage them to use their gifts and talents to create value for others in their community.
Career education happens across all areas of the College as our students engage in learning experiences that allow them to reflect on their interests and strengths. In Year 9 and 10 students participate in career exploration activities through incursions and excursions that provide opportunities for them to reflect on their future aspirations.
This process culminates during Year 10 in the selection of senior school pathways connected to each student’s career aspirations and goals. Students are provided personalised guidance to ensure they are supported in tailoring their pathway to achieve their goals.
This personalised approach means students can select a combination of academic and vocational subjects to support their holistic development and achieve their post-school ambitions. The College offers many on-campus curriculum subjects and extracurricular opportunities for student development. Students are also supported to engage in off-campus learning experiences including vocational training and workplace learning to prepare them for their futures through the ASPIRE program.
In the ASPIRE program students are supported to develop independent learning skills as they balance school and ASPIRE program commitments. Students are encouraged to develop self-organisation skills to ensure they are keeping up to date with their school and work priorities.
The ASPIRE program also facilitates opportunities for career development and guidance with students able to access resources to continue to develop awareness of their vocational interests and strengths, work readiness skills and opportunities to build a career portfolio.
