The King David School provides a carefully developed program of career advice that spans Years 9 to 12. The School’s Careers Advisor, oversees the students’ Career Development program over the 4 years.
In Year 9, students are advised about the different Vocational Education Training (VET) programs that they can access and incorporate into their VCE subject selection.
At Year 10 the Career program begins with a diagnostic test, the Morrisby Report. All students and their parents receive a detailed analysis of the students’ aptitudes and interests and recommendations about career options.
The Career Advisor is closely involved in the process of subject selection for students entering VCE. With their support, students ensure that pre-requisite subjects for which they qualify and which are necessary for entry to their preferred tertiary courses are chosen. Throughout VCE the students receive updates regarding Open Days, closing dates for interviews and folio submission as well as gap year options. A Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) information evening is held annually for parents and students in Year 12 to familiarize them fully with the process of the selection of tertiary courses through VTAC. After graduation, the KDS Career Advisor is available to assist and counsel students who want to change their original preferences.
