Pathways Beyond School – Volunteering Calendar

Throughout the year Ardoch delivers a range of Pathways Beyond School programs. The below calendar represents the upcoming programs currently accepting volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering at any of the listed programs, please use the Expression of Interest form at the bottom of this page. Please note that availability is limited, and subject to change, and volunteers are encouraged to sign up early.

Programs:

Mock Interviews – Secondary school students are connected with working adult volunteers who take part in mock interviews with students, helping them to practice and build interview techniques which are crucial to securing employment.

Speed Careers – Secondary and senior primary school students are connected with a variety of working adults in order to build students’ awareness and understanding of the range of job types, careers, and work/study pathways that exist. During Speed Careers sessions students rotate in groups to hear from each speaker, learning about careers in areas as diverse as law/policing, trades, community work, health, manufacturing, banking and the arts.

Learning Through Lunch – Ardoch’s flagship Pathways Beyond School program for the hospitality industry involves a class of students attending a two-course fine dining lunch with volunteers at a TAFE or hospitality training venue. Each volunteer hosts a group of students during the lunch and encourages them to talk over the meal about paid employment and further education. A tour of the training facility is provided to prompt thinking about post-school options and further education.
