Oak Grove College Careers

Everyone has a career. A career is not a job and it is not only about work it ‘is an individual’s “journey” through learning, work and other aspects of life’.

During your time at Oak Grove College you will look at ways to understand and define ‘career’. We all have a distinctive set of qualities and interests.

You will consider what your qualities and interests are and how you could develop them. We are all learning new things – Some of these things will make us better at hobbies, some at learning, etc. You will see how your skills are linked to the different jobs people do. 

There are many different ways of learning the skills needed for work You will look at education pathways and explore some jobs in your community.
