CQU Update

Career Videos for Year 10s

We’ve developed a series of short animations that explain different careers. These animations cover information on what to expect in that career, the skills needed, and the future job outlook.
They also point students in the right direction when deciding what discipline they might like to study, along with the pre-requisite subjects they’ll need to study in their senior years of school.

We’ve included some examples below, for the full suite visit the website.

 

Post Year 12 Study Options Webinar

In case you missed our Post Year 12 Study Options Webinar in June, we’ve included a link to the recording below.

The webinar covers what options students can pursue after graduating Year 12 and provides helpful resources on making a career choice. We also include where to look for information on courses, entry requirements as well as detailed information about how to apply.

After the webinar, we put together a cheat sheet based on the links and resources we used in the presentation, and also the questions we received during the session.

CSIRO Young Indigenous Women’s STEM Academy (YIWSA) 

On behalf of the CSIRO Young Indigenous Women’s STEM Academy (YIWSA), I would like to bring to you attention this fantastic opportunity for Young Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander women in Secondary School.

IWSA are currently recruiting young women with an interest in STEM in the following year levels and regions:

Year 8:                Brisbane west (includes Ipswich, Lockyer Valley and Toowoomba)

Year 11:              Nationally

All Academy activities are completed outside of school hours and will compliment what they are learning at school.

The Academy provides a holistic, streamlined approach improving young women’s access to STEM opportunities and careers. Participation in the Academy commences before students choose critical high school subjects ensuring study and career progression into STEM fields. The program has been designed to combine STEM extension activities and individualised support for participants. The individualised support will be provided in the form of specialist STEM activities, mentors and peer networks.  An important part of the work that we do when a student joins the academy, is building a strong and respectful relationship with the school community so together we can work alongside the young women and their families into the future.

For program information and how to apply, please visit the YIWSA website.
