Throughout Years 7-12 we educate our students about goal setting and reflect on achievements to plan new learning goals for the future.

Our Future Pathways Officer provides support, guidance and advice to students regarding work placement, university course possibilities and opportunities for traineeships. Our HSC Learning Coaches also provide motivation and encourage students to have high aspirations.

At Penola our students have the opportunity to speak to our experienced Careers Advisor. Students are supported and guided as they gather information about Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training as well as work opportunities.
