Good Shepherd Lutheran College prepares students to develop the skills required to manage their career development and navigate an ever changing world of work.

An array of opportunities are offered across and beyond the College for students to engage in career-related learning through exploration, education and experiential learning as well as engagement in individual career counselling sessions. Coupled with the College’s focus on positive education, Lutheran values, Service Learning and growth mindsets, students’ develop strong self and career awareness to be able to explore, design and navigate their own unique place in the world.

The College provides a qualified Career Counsellor to support students throughout their schooling and in preparing for their transition to reach their post-school goals. Students are encouraged to book an appointment time by emailing Mrs Purcell, with drop-in sessions available during break times. Students may like to seek assistance with career exploration, work experience placements, decision-making, goal setting, or applications for career-related learning experiences, gap year programs or tertiary applications. A dedicated Careers website is accessible to all College families to promote the broad range of career-related learning opportunities available to students.

The ‘Careers News' section of the Shepherd’s Pie is published fortnightly and has a brief outline of the key dates for upcoming events and career-related learning opportunities. Students and parents are encouraged to follow the news and take-up the range of relevant experiences on offer for students throughout the year.
