News From the Careers Department

Some students have contacted me regarding a change of mind relating to their subjects for next year. There will be a time allocated for students to make appointments to reconsider their program once they have received their subject allocations in Term 4, so no changes can be made at this time.

CASPer Test for Undergraduate Education Courses in Victoria

Most tertiary institutions are requiring applicants to Education courses to undertake the CASPer test to assess personal qualities as part of the selection process in addition to the ATAR. It is important for our students to become familiar with this information and the fact sheet produced by VTAC has been uploaded for student reference at http://portal.tintern.vic.edu.au/homepage/16558/

Interested students had the opportunity to work through the sample scenarios and discuss the technical requirements of completing this test at home. Further information can be found at https://takecasper.com/
