Students receive White Cards and barista certificates

Term 1 has seen 17 students at Brisbane Water Secondary College obtaining their construction industry White Card and 12 students receiving a Certificate of Attainment for Barista Skills, according to careers teacher Ms Nerrida Lewis.

"I have had many meetings with students interested in participating in work experience," she said.

"Students only have to be 14 to join the work experience program.

She said the two main reasons students wanted to participate were because they were looking for casual work or because they wanted to experience a career of interest first hand.

"Students have all been advised that if they would like time to talk to me about their own personal career goals, they should place a note with their name on it and put it in the Careers letterbox on my office door (upstairs A block).

"My letterbox is emptied weekly and I meet with the students who need to see me."

Ms Lewis said she had been provided with some students' resumes.

"This has meant students can still be working in class and updating their current resume while the rest of the class is writing theirs.

"These resumes also need to be uploaded so that they are on file for the future, including for Year 10 careers classes at the Woy Woy Campus in 2021.

"Students studies for the term have included; a personality quiz, networking activity, A-Z of jobs and resume building and writing.

"Students have also been shown the sites for obtaining a Unique Student Identifier and a tax file number.

"They can do this from as young as 13.

"I have encouraged all of Year 9 to ensure they hear the daily notices in rollcall and check the BWSC Umina Facebook page for careers updates, position's vacant and other opportunities."

Ms Lewis said Term 2 excursions would include a final Barista Course on May 28 and a White Card course on June 18.

"The barista course has limited spots and notes will be available early term two," she said.
