The Careers Office provides support for our students and their families by helping students to identify and understand their strengths and capabilities.
Career Education at Moriah enables students to:
• Gain an awareness of their individual abilities, interests and values and how these relate to their career planning.
• Acquire a knowledge of the world of work, further education and training opportunities.
• Make career decisions based on self-knowledge and the range of options available.
• Acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to implement their decisions.
The Career Education program is embedded across all subjects, with individual counselling, excursions and guest speakers. The Moriah College Careers Office helps students to grow, learn, and transition into the world of work post school.
Current parents and students can view the Careers tile on eLY for more specific information and resources relating to our Careers Education program at Moriah.
