Parents and Guardians are welcome to contact the school and arrange an interview with a Managed Individual Pathways (MIPs) counsellor if your child is experiencing difficulties and needs assistance in succeeding at school, completing their schooling to the highest level possible (Year 10 as a minimum) and in gathering information about potential careers.
The purpose of MIPs interviews is to review the student’s pathways plan and discuss their future pathways. The program also includes follow-up of early school leavers (those who don’t complete Year 12) at the time of leaving and six months later.
As a MIPs counsellor our role is to help our students identify their educational goals, employment goals and the pathways that can travel along to achieve these goals. Information is an important tool when it comes to making choices and decisions.
The MIPs counsellors are Tim Kogelman, Craig Harris and Leigh Callander. To arrange an interview please contact the school on 9735 5644.
MIPs aim to help students to:
- make a smooth transition from compulsory schooling to further education, training and employment
- develop skills to manage their pathways throughout their working lives
- develop their knowledge, understanding and experience of opportunities in education, training and employment
What are pathways?
After leaving school, our students can choose between:
- continuing further education and training through TAFE or University
- undertaking an apprenticeship or traineeship
- finding employment
- taking a gap year where they may participate in employment, community or volunteer work and/or travel
