Preparing our Students
The breadth of offering at Caulfield Grammar allows most students to follow their interests to the highest levels. Specific programs are designed for our senior students to support their transition to tertiary study or the workforce. VCE units are offered from Year 10 to introduce students to VCE courses and assessment so that they may then tailor a course of study to suit their interests, needs and preferred destinations. Many students subsequently enrol in First Year University Programs and Vocational Education and Training programs offered in association with TAFE Institutes.
Caulfield’s comprehensive careers program provides students with exposure to a range of industries and tertiary institutions through, for example, work experience, careers breakfasts, and job interview and resume writing practice. Ongoing careers assistance is available to graduating students.
