Plenty of path­ways to a bright fu­ture

Mercury (Hobart) - - BACK TO SCHOOL -

CLARE­MONT

Col­lege pro­vides cour­ses for stu­dents to give them a clear path­way to univer­sity, TAFE or em­ploy­ment.

Lo­cal in­dus­tries have ar­tic­u­lated a need for stu­dents to com­plete cour­ses that di­rectly link to spe­cific ar­eas of in­dus­try.

The col­lege prides it­self on be­ing a small, friendly and bou­tique provider of Year 11 and 12 ed­u­ca­tion in Ho­bart’s north­ern suburbs.

Lo­cated close to ma­jor tourist at­trac­tions and on the gate­way to the West Coast, Clare­mont Col­lege of­fers par­tic­u­lar strengths for stu­dents who wish to study in foods, hos­pi­tal­ity and agri­cul­ture di­rectly re­lated to the tourism and agri­cul­ture in­dus­try.

The col­lege of­fers vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing in tourism and agri­cul­ture, and has a unique part­ner­ship with the Univer­sity of Tas­ma­nia.

The col­lege has an on-site uniHUB, which pro­vides di­rect ac­cess to univer­sity staff and ex­per­tise and a sup­port­ive path­way into ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion.

The col­lege of­fers a full range of Level 3 cour­ses for stu­dents wish­ing to pur­sue a univer­sity path­way. A fea­ture of this part­ner­ship will be the Clare­mont Col­lege Aca­demic Pro­gram (CAP).

This pro­gram will sup­port all stu­dents study­ing Level 3 and 4 cour­ses by of­fer­ing ex­tra as­sis­tance to men­tor and pro­vide out-of-col­lege ex­pe­ri­ences to en­hance learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The col­lege has de­vel­oped strate­gic part­ner­ships with in­dus­try train­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to sup­port stu­dents ac­cess­ing as many em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties as pos­si­ble.

One such provider is the Bea­con Foun­da­tion, which helps pro­vide all-im­por­tant lo­cal in­dus­try links and en­sures up-to-date, in­dus­try-rel­e­vant learn­ing.

Fam­ily en­gage­ment is a key fea­ture of the work done at Clare­mont Col­lege.

All of the staff at the col­lege work as a team to make fam­i­lies feel wel­come, and they are en­gaged to sup­port their child to do their best.

Meet the Teacher Day on March 6 is a clear ex­am­ple of the col­lege be­ing in­vi­ta­tional to all fam­i­lies of stu­dents who study or in­tend to learn at Clare­mont Col­lege.

Many par­ents and friends say they feel very sup­ported and ac­knowl­edge that they play a crit­i­cal role in the suc­cess of their daugh­ter or son while they are learn­ing.

The dy­namic Clare­mont Col­lege Face­book page and col­lege web­site ( clare­mont­col­lege.ed­u­ca­tion.tas.edu.au) show the ex­cit­ing and var­ied learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment at the school.

The pow­er­ful stu­dent lead­er­ship team at the col­lege en­sures that all stu­dents have a say in what ac­tiv­i­ties are avail­able to make their time at the col­lege as en­joy­able as pos­si­ble.

It is not un­com­mon to see all of our stu­dents gath­ered around the col­lege’s wood-fired pizza oven shar­ing a com­mu­nity lunch.

En­rol­ment for new stu­dents opens on Jan­uary 29 at the col­lege.

Meet the teach­ers on the green at Clare­mont Col­lege on March 6.

Our stu­dents, past and present, will be play­ing mu­sic, and the evening will fin­ish with a mys­tery, high-pro­file pro­fes­sional mu­si­cal act.
