Career Update for Year 12 students

Tertiary Studies


 

This is a very important year for you – your Level 2 results will be important when you apply for scholarships later in the year.  The other thing which is very helpful for you to have is a record of school, community and/or voluntary work. This tells decision makers that you are able to sustain a good level of academic achievement and contribute to the community you live in.

 

Universities

Universities make two visits to school each year.  The first visit is called a “First Round Visit” (FRV) and usually happens in terms 1 or 2.  The FRV is an introduction to what is on offer for you and a lot of information about university life generally.  This covers entrance qualifications, university jargon, degree options and subjects available, scholarship opportunities and accommodation.  While each university has an emphasis on their own offerings, the content of each first round presentation is valuable information across all New Zealand universities.  It would be a good idea for you to attend one or two this year – just to see what they are like. These events are advertised via Student Notices, and on these year level newsletters.  The newsletters will also be uploaded to Trident’s website.

 

The second visit happens in term 3 or 4 and at this time school liaison officers provide course planning – that is the choice of papers and assistance with your degree structure – support with completion of applications for accommodation and courses, information on scholarship application etc.  This will be helpful for you next year.

 

Whakapiki Ake is a recruitment project which aims to expose Māori students to health careers and increase the number of Māori students entering into healthcare professions.  What Whakapiki Ake offers is:

  • Maori student scholarships including fees and course related cost support

  • COACH (Year 13) and MASH (Year 12) programmes

Kanewa Stokes will be in the Careers room on Wednesday 4 March 10.30am – 11.30am to promote these programmes.  If you are maori and have a minimum of two applied sciences and an interest in the health sector you should attend.  I cannot recommend this programme highly enough – it is outstanding. If you are maori and have two applied scienes and do not know what you want to do when you leave school – attend.  Sign up sheet in Careers Room

Sign up forms for these visits and other career events are in the Careers Room. We ask you to sign up so we have an indication of numbers expected to attend – there is also an attendance sheet on the day which we do the KAMAR entries from so that you are not marked “T”. Here are the opportunities available until the end of Term 1.
