Work Experience for Year 10s


My Future How

Elanora SHS has developed the "My Future How" program to better assist Year 10 students in the crucial career decision making process associated with their Student Education and Training Plan (SETPlan). Students will be engaged in "My Future How" during the last week of Term 2 from Monday 25/06/2018 to Friday 29/06/2018 inclusive.

In order to most effectively meet the diverse needs of all Year 10 students we have structured the "My Future How" program into two components:

  • Program A: Tertiary institution visits, which incorporates campus visits to Queensland University, Griffith University, Southern Cross University (both the Gold Coast and Lismore campus) and Bond University. On each day of this program students will travel by bus to a predetermined campus and will undertake a campus tour as well as visiting specific faculties to partake in set activities as appropriate to that faculty. Students will be asked to nominate the faculty they are most interested in finding more about; this should link to Elanora SHS School Academies (for example Business, Health, Science & Engineering, and the Arts) in which the student has demonstrated the greatest interest and/or aptitude. Students selected for this program will have demonstrated high level outcomes in literacy and numeracy (as evidenced through academic reports) and attendance rates of 95% or more. In other words have meet or exceeded Elanora SHS's published targets.
  • Program B: Work Experience, where students decide upon a possible employment area in which they may like to find full or part time work in the future or where they would like to explore the nature of the work undertaken by people in this industry area. This program is designed to provide students with an understanding of work place expectations, how to cooperate and behave in the work place, as well as, allowing students to make an initial decision as to their suitability for the job/industry.

The knowledge and experience gained through the "My Future How" program is designed to assist students make informed subject and course selections that can best prepare them for success in the future. All students are required to participate in one of the above programs.

Both programs are fully funded through Elanora SHS Resource Scheme so there is no cost for students associated with their participation.
