Students exiting the college

At this stage of the year some students and families are making decisions about attending selective entry schools, TAFE or obtaining full-time apprenticeships.  The Careers team are happy to assist in discussing the options available.  Please contact us at


If a student is exiting it is important that:

• A letter is provided to the Sub School office outlining destination plans.

• The relevant ‘Exit’ and/or ‘Transition from School’ forms (for students below age 17) is collected from the relevant Sub School office.

• An ‘Exit’ appointment is made with the Careers team.  Students should also complete and print their ‘Career Action Plan’ from Compass.

• If a student is planning to exit before reaching the age of 17 a ‘Transition from School’ form must be completed and sent to the Regional Office for approval. TAFE and employers will require this form to be finalised so they can enrol the student.


Year’s 7-12 Work experience call out

The Careers team and some of our alumni are looking forward to informing our current Year 9 students about work experience matters in the first 2 weeks of Year 10.  If you, or a business you are connected to, have opportunities to place Mount Waverley Secondary College students during the week commencing 4 June 2018, please contact Stephanie Thomas in the Careers office 

This program relies on the community supporting experiences for students.

Year 9 families will receive letters about the Work Experience Program early in Term 4.
