The Careers Centre is resourced with current material on the Universities, Polytechnics and Industry Training Organisations (ITOs). Students are able to “drop in” to the Centre to have their questions answered or to make an appointment if they require a longer consultation. Information about career events such as University Liaison Presentations, University Information Evenings, Open Days, Holiday Short Courses, for example at Taratahi or Yoobee and the annual Careers Expo are displayed on noticeboards throughout the school, in the Careers Office, and in classrooms. Students and parents are notified of these events in the Daily Notices, the School Newsletters Facebook (FDMC Careers) and via the parent portal on Kamar.
