Fostering Skills, Competencies and Attitudes for Future Careers

We invite you to an insightful seminar aimed at empowering parents to support their children as they navigate their future career paths. The unique blend of competencies, skills, attitudes, and knowledge possessed by school graduates will significantly shape their opportunities and capacity to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving career landscape. Navigating this changing environment can be daunting, especially when the experiences of parents and teachers may not fully reflect the contemporary attributes sought by employers.

At St Michael’s, we are committed to ensuring our students are well-prepared for the dynamic world of work. Our Framework for Teaching, Learning, and Caring guides us in this endeavor. This seminar provides an invaluable opportunity for parents to gain deeper insights into the evolving nature of employment and how they can best support their children as they prepare to enter it.

Hear from our expert panel, including:

Diana Hodgson: Director HR Strategic Partners

With over 20 years across diverse industries and organisations, Diana brings a unique understanding of organisational dynamics and effective work practices. Her insights offer a fresh perspective on the key success factors that will shape the job market in the future. As your children step into the world of employment, Diana’s expertise will be invaluable in understanding what employers will be seeking.

Robyn McKenzie: St Michael’s Careers Counsellor
Luke Matthews: Director (10-12)
Ross Phillips: Associate Head – Research, Innovation, and Professional Practice (K-12)
