Career Insight Talks

Highworth works closely with our Alumni, and other employers and employees, to offer career insight talks for our current students.

This year our employer talks will compromise a mix of in-person, and virtual engagement opportunities. For the virtual talks, Highworth has partnered with Speakers for Schools to stream their live Discovery Workshops. Our in-person talks will start be in Terms 3 and 4. 

Career talks are delivered by those directly working in the industry/job and cover; what the job role actually involves; skills and qualifications needed; best and worst parts of the job; how the students can improve their chances of success in the future; and a short Q&A. 

The careers we have scheduled this academic year are as follows: Virtual talks are in italics
