Careers Fast Track
Careers Fast Track is a privately-owned company employed to provide professional and individual career advice to students based upon their interests, as indicated by aptitude testing. This is normally a very expensive service but Blackburn High School has negotiated a lower rate for our students. Access to Career Fast Track’s services is available to all Year 10 students on a “user pays” basis.
During the last week of Term 3, all Year 10 students are expected to undertake some form of Work Experience. This is as much about experiencing the world of work, and finding out first-hand the expectations of employers, as it is a career “try-out”. There are government and school policies governing Work Experience, which are designed to prevent the exploitation of students and to ensure their safely. Blackburn High School’s Work Experience policy is available by request.
