Students look towards future

Tenison Woods College recently welcomed students and their families to the 2023 Pathways and Careers Expo.

This gave students the ‘wonderful opportunity’ to explore both curriculum and career offerings for 2023.

Students had the opportunity to chat with over 50 exhibitors from across South Australia, including universities and higher education facilities, employment agencies, local businesses, city-based student accommodation providers and Tenison’s own curriculum and learning area experts.

Tenison Woods College careers counsellor Jody Elliot said it was an outstanding opportunity for students to engage with industry and higher learning institutions to better understand the connection between subject selections and career pathways.

“Speaking to industry and other learning providers enables students to learn about a potential career path that best speaks to them, or perhaps discover a career path they may not have otherwise considered,” she said.

The expo was also an opportunity for Tenison Woods College to launch the 2023 curriculum.

Some exciting new subjects were also launched on the evening including Agriculture, High Performance Dance Program, Exploring Identities and Futures and Activating Identities and Futures.

Tenison Woods College principal David Mezinec said students were able to discuss their chosen interests with learning area coordinators, to make sure they are choosing a learning journey that speaks to them and fits their chosen interests.

“We were thrilled with the turnout on the evening, with 600 individuals walking through the doors of the Barrie Holmes Stadium,” he said.

“I wish to thank all of those who took part because these events would not be possible without their support.

“We thank all students and their families that joined us on the evening and we trust that this event will return bigger and better in 2023, showcasing the curriculum for 2024.”
