Careers Support Program
Structured career guidance and advice begins in Year 9 at Northpine Christian College and the College is committed to ensuring students make informed decisions regarding career paths throughout and beyond the world of secondary education.

Our College prides itself on being able to design and create logical and common sense pathways of education for all students which effectively lead into post high school careers and tertiary study plans, adopting the biblical values found in Jeremiah 29:11.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Students are presented with a range of aspirational as well as realistic options and applicable courses or programs, giving them direction and purpose in order to make good decisions regarding their professional future.

The Academic / Careers Coordinator is Mr Michael Colquhoun and he can assist in all Career direction assistance and Academic subject pathways in the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and areas such as:

  • Work Experience – Five day compulsory program
  • School based traineeships and apprenticeship programs
  • Certificate courses and external study whilst at high school
  • Choosing Subjects & Change of Subject Requests
  • OP / Non OP Criteria and QCE Points regarding Students’ Year 11 and 12 Journey
  • Distance Education Subjects
  • Student Learning Accounts
  • QCS Testing in the OP Journey
  • QTAC Preferences & Scholarship Applications

Among much other content, Careers education classes provide assistance with personality testing and job suitability testing, resume and cover letter writing, visits to careers expos, facilitation of work experience, visits by guest speakers, university open days as well as completing university and college applications.

Career interest pathways and tailored academic program-based interviews with parents and students are compulsory at Northpine Christian College for Year 10-12 students as this will enable all relevant stakeholders (students, parents and teachers) to create and following individualised learning packages which will support students working to strengths and developing a clear vision regarding their job or tertiary study prospects.
