Past Students Inspire with Career Advice

Year 10 students enjoyed a fantastic careers panel with 12 former students returning to share their insights and experiences.

Pathways Coordinator Gill Bentley gathered the panel from recent graduates, most having left Elwood College within the past five years. 

"It was amazing," Mrs Bentley said. "They gave off-the-cuff presentations about how they chose their career pathways, how they chose their subjects and how they tackled the VCE. Because they graduated quite recently, the Year 10 students really connected with their advice. They asked lots of questions and there was quite a lively discussion."

Each graduate's experience was different - some had followed they exact pathway they planned in high school, while others had pursued unexpected and diverse opportunities - but all were passionate and excited about their careers.
