  • Change of Preference counselling and University transition for Year 12 students
  • Liaison with VTAC, Universities and TAFEs.
  • Access to a comprehensive Careers Resource Centre
  • Weekly Career News newsletter
  • Work Experience management and support
  • Job Application training, and Interview Preparation.
  • Vocational Education (VETiS) management for VCE students


The Careers Centre at Elwood College maintains a rich and extensive, up to date careers library which includes the very latest career and course information. There is also a full service Careers Website that is available to all students, parents and guardians.

Students or their parents can make individual appointments by emailing or can drop in at the Careers Centre at recess, lunchtime or after school Monday to Wednesday.
