Home / Our Schools / Senior Years / Pathways & Careers
The Pathways Faculty exists to ensure all students experience relevant and meaningful learning that nurtures them to realise their full potential. We aim to equip our students with skills, experience, knowledge and insight so they can confidently transition into society according to their God-given calling and purpose.
We run programmes throughout the school year for students in Year 10-13. The Pathways Centre is also open for general enquires during school hours. Feel free to pop in and visit us, or you can make an appointment with Mrs Cherie Perrow for individual career guidance or subject selection advice.
Every student from Year 10 to Year 13 will be actively involved in planning their future learning and career goals through the Career Central platform. Career Central is a comprehensive online tool that allows students to develop an understanding of their identity over time, in order to transition from KingsWay into confident and connected life-long learners.
Please note that in order to have an appointment with Cherie, all students must complete Steps 1 & 2 of their Career Central profile, and their bulls-eye assessment (yellow icon at bottom of home page) before attending. Click on the link below for Career Central, then use Microsoft login details.
