My Education is a coordinated whole-school approach to career and life planning. It is a partnership between the student, parents and carers, the college and the community, and also aims to engage with business and industry in Tasmania by linking education with a student’s future employment options.
Bayview staff activate their lived experiences to engage and support students to identify their personal interests, values, strengths and aspirations, and teach them how to use this knowledge to make decisions about their future learning, work and life opportunities. The program is delivered as part of pastoral care / home group for each grade and supplemented with guest speakers, assemblies, themed days and industry partners, who visit the college to tell their story and importantly, share their career pathway.
Students at Bayview Secondary College have the opportunity to participate in a personalised curriculum that is tailored to their own needs and interests, as well as undertaking a core curriculum that is centred on the knowledge, skills, capabilities and conceptual understandings outlined in the Australian Curriculum. Students are supported to develop their own personalised learning plans, designed to assist them with their pathway through to College or further vocational training.
We focus our Year 9/10 program towards Industry Pathway Planning, working closely with our Collective Education team around further education and employment.
Our Year 7/8’s also share the direction of further education by focussing on achieving required literacy and numeracy levels across the college and for the workforce. Workforce exposure and opportunities are an important aspect of our Flexible approaches.
