Huonville High Transition Program

Huonville High School provides a range of choices for students in years 11 and 12.
We work with Hobart College to transition those students intending to go to Hobart College in 2017.

Students wishing to attend Elizabeth, Rosny or Claremont colleges, along with non-government schools,
are responsible for their own enrolment and transition. See links below.

Transition Planning

Term 3 and 4 Program

Grade 10 students undertake work studies courses and use My Education online to plan their transition to careers.

Grade 10 Transition Plans

It is a legal requirement of the Department of Education that all grade 10 students complete a transition plan. Below are the tasks students at Huonville High need to undertake to complete the plan.

1. Transition Plan Draft Task

Using the information you now have, you need to start writing a transition plan. This includes:
  * a vision statement (150 words on what you want to do in college, in the future, what you will study, etc)
  * 2 career ideas
  * subject choices for year 11 and 12
  * intended destination for year 11
  * work placements, career programs and part-time employment you have been involved in.
Access the draft transition plan. (This must be completed by TBA)

2. Transition Plan Online Task

You will be given a specific time by your teacher that you need to put your draft transition plan into an online system. It is really important that you have your draft transition plan with you and that you have had it checked by your teacher. A link will be put here closer to the day you need to upload it. It is a legal requirement that all grade 10 students complete a transition plan.

3. Review of Transition Plan Task

In October and November, students will be asked to review their transition plan to ensure it accurately reflects their intended destination for 2016 as well as career ideas and college subjects. Home group teachers will guide students through this process.

Career Taster Days

From time to time, we get contacted about career taster days.
These are your own responsibility to apply for and attend, if successful.

Bigger Teaching

The best way to get kids excited about uni is through their teachers. If we can give teachers what they need to get the job done, bigger things can happen.

Here’s how we’re doing this:

■ Holding events to make it easier for uni lecturers, high school and college teachers to meet and share ideas

■ Developing teachers’ skills so they’re better equipped to inspire young people to finish school and study at the University of Tasmania

Bigger Thinking

A degree will help you earn more, stretch your mind and be a big help to your community. Here are a couple of ways to find out why it’s worth giving uni a shot.

■ Come along to a career expo or info session, have your questions answered and find out about the kind of jobs and careers uni equips you for

■ We’re organising visits to the University of Tasmania campuses, so come and see what it’s like to live a day in the life of a uni student

Bigger Pathways

You might be keen to get out and start working as soon as you can. Fair enough. But there’s lots of different ways to get to uni after working for a while or studying at TasTAFE.

■ Check out how you can connect TasTAFE with the University of Tasmania through their Open Days

■ Visit to find out all the pathways into a university course

Bigger Mentors

It can be tough to figure out how to get from high school to a great job that’s satisfying and pays well.
So we’ve brought together locals who’ve done exactly that. They’ll talk to you about how they got there and what they learned along the way.

Bigger Connections

Young people from rural areas often face more challenges connecting to financial support and education. Here are a few things we’re doing to break down barriers and give everyone a good chance.

■ Equipping school buses with wi-fi

■ Running more buses between
Huonville and Hobart

■ Making our info on scholarships and
financial support clear and accessible

■ Improving videoconferencing to help
students connect with other students
and teachers

Bigger Support

We realise that it takes a whole community of caring people to help kids make big things happen. Here’s a few practical things we’re doing to help the helpers.

■ Holding info days about student job opportunities for parents and carers

■ Running workshops and public talks to help provide practical career advice

■ Inviting parents and students to visit the University of Tasmania during Open Days
