Daylesford College offers a range of careers related support.

We have a qualified Careers Practitioner who is available to meet with students one-on-one to discuss their individual goals and pathways. Students can book an appointment, at a suitable time, for these meetings.
The Careers Practitioner is also involved in a range of activities to support our students including:

  • implementing the Year 9 My Career Insights program. This is a state government initiative which enables student in Year 9 to complete a Morrisby skills and interests profile. They then meet with a Morrisby trained Career Practitioner to discuss their profile and pathway options.
  • organising and assisting year 10 students with work experience. Our work experience week is scheduled for the last week of term 2 each year. This provided students with an opportunity to observe and participate in a full-time work placement.
  • supporting year 12 students in their transition to tertiary education, employment and apprenticeships at the end of their secondary schooling,
  • providing access to guest speakers such as employers, training organisations, representatives from universities and TAFEs, and previous students regarding their post-school experiences, to help develop students’ awareness of the options and pathways available to them.
  • managing the Careers curriculum content for the Careers program. This program currently runs at Year 9, with all students doing a 3-period a week study over a semester.

The Careers office also sends out a regular newsletter and maintains our Daylesford College Careers website.

As well as providing general information, all DC students
can login to their individual page on our
website. Here they can access specific pathway quizzes,
templates to create a resume and cover letter, an e-portfolio
and a whole lot of other resources.
