The Careers Workshop for F.4 students was held on 27th May this year. Presentations with different topics and activities were conducted to guide students on life planning. With career choices and progression to university as the main focus, the interactive sessions engaged students in exploring their preferences and options by reflecting on their interests, personality and strengths. In order to learn more about themselves, the students identified their Holland / RAISEC code through activities that were designed based on the workbook called: 'Career Mapping: A Career Development Tool for Senior Secondary Students'. Comprehensive information about local and overseas university pathways including Non-Jupas, Jupas routes were introduced to the students. The importance of values and work values when choosing an occupation or industry were explained in details.

Apart from talking about the rewards and challenges of their work, they also gave wholehearted advice on academic and career choices. Students were very engaged as they had the opportunity to gain insight into different industries and also learn about fascinating experiences at work. At the end of the workshop, students are equipped with the necessary tools for future planning and they are ready to make decisions through informed choices.
