Our Careers Team provide a variety of programs and learning opportunities to support students’ exploration and understanding of the world of work, some of which include:

Subject selection

Stage 5 and 6 students are involved in guided workshops where they can learn more about the courses offered to make informed choices about their pathway planning. Year 10 students transitioning into Year 11 will be required to attend a Subject Selection evening where information will be provided to assist students and families in their selection of senior courses. Several staff members will be available on the night for you to ask questions and seek advice regarding subject choices. Further information can be found here.

Transition support

For students looking to leave school after achieving their Year 10 RoSA (Record of School Achievement) they must be engaged in full time work, TAFE or an Apprenticeship/Traineeship. Click here for more information on the NSW school leaving age.

UTS U@Uni Academy

The U@Uni Academy is an alternate, non-ATAR entry pathway for selected Bonnyrigg High School students that focuses on 21st century skills, on-campus experiences and transition support from high school to university. The program runs for two years, starting at the beginning of year 11 and upon successful completion, students will receive an offer to study one of the undergraduate courses offered at UTS.

Work Experience

Students in Year 10 are encouraged to complete a Work Experience program in Term 4, which provides participating students the opportunity to gain insight into a particular industry, increase employability skills and improve future employment opportunities by enhancing their resume to secure casual/part-time work. Students are responsible for organising their own placement, with support from Careers Advisers. 


This initiative is an intensive employment and training program for young people aged 15-19. Yourtown's Get Back in the Game (GBIG) is fully funded by the NSW Government (therefore FREE!) and helps young people build their confidence and knowledge as well as develop skillsets, obtain qualifications, and provide opportunities to access pathways to employment and/or education.
