What type of career do I want to pursue?

It is never too early to start thinking about the answer to this question and many of our students here at St Dominic’s have some great ideas.  I always remind students that is important to follow your interests and pursue your passions, as this will help in having a smooth and enjoying transition from education into the workforce.

Our latest event at the College was our Year 12 Seminar and Support Mentoring Program, as the College aims to prepare the boy’s to their full potential upon their final HSC exams. This aims to push for the results the boy’s hope for in securing the courses for their University studies.

Fee-free Apprenticeships Announced 

From 1 July 2018, the NSW Government will cover the qualification fee for 100,000 new apprenticeships over the next six years, to help address skills shortages. Under the initiative, employers and apprentices won’t have to pay the up-to-$2000 qualification fee – the government will pay it direct to the Smart and Skilled training provider.
