STEP into your future is Claremont College’s key message for students as they approach senior secondary education.

To ensure students have all the information to make informed decisions about their courses in years 11 and 12, Claremont College has developed an online course guide and enrolment information space on its website.

Not only does it allow students to explore the many subjects on offer, it also highlights opportunities available to students if they choose to study a particular course.

This may be working in the college’s highly regarded music program with tutors who are experienced performers.

The online guide has profiles of alumni who have gone on to complete apprenticeships, university degrees or excel in research or sport.

These stories of former students and their success are highly motivating and offer insights into possible future career pathways.

Information on the uniHUB situated on the college campus, the only one in southern Tasmania, is available in the new online guide.

This allows Claremont College students access to the University of Tasmania.

Students can now drop in to the uniHUB on the college campus to get advice and assistance in relation to pathways to university study, as well as study support and advice.

There is also a Careers Centre where students can go to find help with determining pathways, accessing career and job information, writing applications and resumes, and interview practice.

Both the HUB and the Careers Centre can be accessed virtually by students who are currently at college and those planning their year 11 program in 2021.

An exciting program at Claremont College, working in conjunction with the uniHUB, is the Claremont College Academic Pathways Program.

It is designed to mentor and support students on a university pathway.

Its goals are to inspire students to aim high, through community engagement and a series of targeted activities, as well as build confidence and develop strategies leading to successful academic study.

In addition to a full suite of TASC courses, Claremont College has an excellent Vocational Education and Training (VET) program managed by experienced staff with long-standing employer networks.

Claremont was the first college to offer Electrotechnology VET in Tasmania and the first in Australia to offer the Australian Defence Forces VET program, which is still going strong in its 15th year and has provided a direct pathway into the ADF for many graduates.

Certificate II in Animal Studies can provide a pathway to work and/or study in the animal care and management industry such as veterinary nursing.

Alongside its VET programs, Claremont College offers many specific industry focussed TASC courses that are well-supported by new facilities and equipment.

In the Agricultural Enterprise class, students have the opportunity to run their own real-life agricultural enterprises, including seedling production, egg production and the raising of chickens and piglets.

The Media Production class uses a fully equipped studio with a green screen and drone, and the Digital Art class works with industry-standard software, including Cinema 4D.

Examples of the work undertaken in these classes can be seen in the course guide.

Claremont College offers every student the chance to develop a unique set of skills relevant to their personal future.

Whether you are on a university pathway or aiming for employment in an industry or trade, there is a course at Claremont College that will help you to realise your dreams.
