YEAR 6 - Discover Your Potential
In Year 6 students visit their local campus and have the opportunity to experience the physical environment of the university, learn about course areas and career pathways and their personal strengths. Students participate in a number of small workshops which aim to introduce students to a range of career options and link these with education, goals and dreams.
YEAR 7 – Recipe for Success
The Stellar Team visits your school and works with you to help picture yourself as a success at high school and beyond. You develop your personal ‘recipe for success’ that might include: · What you put in is what you get out · Think we not me · Be a good mate / look out for each other · Have courage · Debunking university myths – check out our Get Into Uni page · Dare to dream · Bring your piece
YEAR 9- Going To Uni
In year 9, students have the opportunity to visit their local Southern Cross University Campus. As part of this visit students learn more about course content across a variety of academic disciplines; and learn to recognise and develop their personal skills and strengths as they begin to make career and life choices.
YEAR 10- Stellar@Uni Days
Small groups of year 10 students attend the Lismore or Coffs Harbour Campus to explore an academic area of interest in more detail. A number of Stellar@Uni days are held throughout the year, highlighting different course areas and career pathways. Whilst on campus students attend a lecture, participate in a hands-on-tutorial and hear from academic staff about course structure and careers. Students also attend a question and answer session with current university students, having the opportunity to hear about the diverse range of pathways to university.
YEAR 10 – Role Model Careers Day
We come to your school with role models from Clarence Valley Council, SCU, UNE and TAFE North Coast. You will spend about 20 minutes with each role model so you can better identify with the journey taken by speakers and start to understand the varied careers that are available via a course of university study. You will hear real-life experiences of different transition pathways from high school to university to career through interactive small group sessions.
