Careers

Otamatea High School offers students career education and career guidance. From this page students and parents can find links to the school's career plan as well as links to websites that can help students explore different careers and connecting with the exciting world of work.

Our goal

To give every student the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and attributes that expand and enhance their ability to manage their career and make informed learning decisions throughout their life. All students will have a career pathway to employment or further tertiary training before they leave school.

Students who would like advice about their careers, the best school subjects to choose to put them on the right track for their chosen career path and information about tertiary courses or on the job training, can make an appointment with the Career Adviser.

The careers office is at the Hub / Te Pokapū but you might also find me either in the Textiles Room or A4  and on duty around the A- and D-block end of the school three times a week. Or send me an email and I will contact you during whanau time.

Lower down on this page is the School's Careers Calendar where you will find information about career events, visitors coming to the school, scholarships, as well as other opportunities that arise through the year.
