Choosing courses through VTAC


How can you help your year 12 student with choosing courses through VTAC?

For some this is pretty straightforward. If your son or daughter has been loving science subjects, for example, is getting great grades and knows that they truly do want to be a doctor, then it’s as simple as making sure they get their applications in to the courses they prefer, and just study hard towards those final exams.

If, however, he or she is completely at a loss as to what is out there in the world beyond the school gates, then it’s much harder. Potentially it is really quite scary. At school they will hear about Preferences; about how important it is to get them right. But how do they put courses in order of preference if they don’t know what courses to choose?

I can help with choosing courses through VTAC because I’ve been doing it for a long time. Also, I have the professional training to make sure that I can engage with your child, give them the time they need, empathise, listen properly and provide ongoing mentoring. This is a demanding part of year 12, so if you can help them it will take the load off a bit.

Just a couple of meetings is all that is usually needed to provide a bit of clarity and ease the nerves. Even if you’re not located in Hampton, or Bayside, I can support your son or daughter with online conversation. Even online careers tests, which are quick and fun can help to provide focus.

I am passionate about helping young people. It is my aim to eliminate the fears that can often be overwhelming in year 12. Help your child to choose courses through VTAC and then they, and you, can relax knowing that their application is in and so they can get on with their studies.

Contact me on 0419 390 994 for an obligation free chat about how I might help your son or daughter make an exciting career pathways choice for 2017.
