Career Tools: Saint Ignatius’ College new Careers website:

This year, the College has invested in a new Careers resource which has been proving very helpful for both students and parents. The Career Tools website is a one stop shop for everything you need with Career planning, SACE and life in general! On this site you can find information on SACE, VET, career quizzes, Uni Admissions, Work Experience, Gap Years, finding a job, writing a resume, Defence Careers and Youth Allowance…. just to name a few!

Some students in Year 10 PLP have already been using the site, especially the Student Secure Area. This area contains a fantastic array of resources such as career quizzes, job videos, VET information, study skills and exam information and resume writing ideas. All documents for work experience are also located on this handy site. The For Parents section contains many valuable resources, such as a document entitled “Helping your Teenager with Career Planning”. Post School Options allows students to research universities, compare courses, and contains government reports such as the “Beyond School Study Guide” as well as access to information such as applying for apprenticeships, traineeships and applying for Austudy.

The Career Targets allow students to access careers and information based upon their favourite subjects at school and is all linked to the Good Careers Guide.

To access this site simply go to www.ignatiuscareers.com.auAlternately, access via the College website, by going to “Student Life” then “Access Career Tools Platform”
