Holsworthy High School Careers Website

Careers  at Holsworthy High School offers a comprehensive careers program for all Year 10, 11 and 12 students. This includes a vast selection of careers resources and activities that enhance students' career planning for their post school options.
A careers resource area is located outside Ms o'Neill- our Career Advisers office where students have access to all university and TAFE publications as well as many job and industry specific books.
The Careers Adviser assists students in areas such as:
  • subject selection,
  • preparation for the world of work,
  • career planning,
  • selecting appropriate post school options
  • accessing courses offered by universities, TAFE, and
  • other training providers,
  • application and interview skills, and
  • other work related areas
  • excursions to Universities, TAFE colleges, and Career Expos
The Careers Adviser assists Years 11 and 12 students with information on HSC and admission to universities, TAFE and private colleges. 
In Year 10, students undertake one lesson in Careers every fortnight. Careers is focused on encouraging students to consider various occupations, professions and vocations that may interest them, and exposes students to the educational and personal requirements of different career paths. These opportunities are designed to broaden students' knowledge or possible career choices.

Work Experience at Holsworthy High School
  • Students in Years 10 are encouraged to complete a Work Experience Placement program throughout the year.
  • Work Experience is a voluntary program and students are encouraged to participate as an opportunity to test out their career interests, increase their employability skills, to secure casual/part-time work or simply to boost their resume for future employment applications.
  • Students are responsible for organising their own placement and follow the procedures outlined by the Careers Adviser, completing all required documentation, to ensure that the school, the employer and the students themselves are covered by the NSW DET Insurance Indemnity. Please see Ms O'Neill for paperwork.
