Our careers and transitions programmes focus on helping boys to explore their options so they can make informed choices about what they do next.
Our Careers Advisor works with boys, teachers and house staff to determine a direction for each student and make a plan for their future after school.
Students are encouraged to learn how to self-manage their career and personal development
throughout their lives.
Transition classes deliver the necessary skills and knowledge for students to successfully move on from Dilworth to tertiary education or work.
In Year 11, students begin to explore opportunities for their future by learning about themselves and their possible pathways. Students develop a deeper understanding of how to live in the world and safely manage themselves, their responsibilities and relationships. Topics include: knowing self, careers, goal setting, building good relationships, being healthy, keeping safe, caring for children and study skills.
In Year 12, students continue their personal development and start to define pathways. Students develop practical skills and knowledge for life after Dilworth. Topics include: responsible driving, financial literacy, flatting, finding work, job interviews, communication, car and home maintenance, and basic cooking.
We continue to help Dilworth boys once they leave our gates. Ongoing support and advice is
available to former students where required.
They are also encouraged to join the Dilworth Old Boys’ Association, where they find strong networks, further support and assistance with career opportunities.
