Career Pathways

John Forrest has a dedicated Pathways Hub in the college library. The centre is staffed with specialist teachers and a work placement officer.

Under the guidance of our Program Coordinator, our College provides comprehensive information to students as they consider their career options. Students have access to extensive career education programs, individual career counselling, a well- resourced Career Centre, careers exhibitions and opportunities to listen to and meet with guest speakers to maximise their opportunities to explore future pathways.
