Careers & Pathways
Jens Boernemeyer is our Careers and Pathways Coordinator at Mount Alexander College. He predominantly works with students in Years 9 to 12 to develop an individual Career Development and Pathways Plans. The plans are done at a minimum on yearly basis. Jens works with students on strategies for their short- and long-term goals and aspirations. This helps to inform their course selection.
Some of the other major ways Jens helps the students is finding placement for work experience; assisting students to complete their job applications; one-on-one career counselling; and assisting with the VTAC application process. Jens also organises excursions for students so that they have exposure to different career options.
There is an annual Career Expo that is run by the students, who are guided and assisted by the school staff. The expo showcases careers across many industries. All students have the opportunity to take part in this.
The Careers and Pathways Office is located near the Heads of House Office. Jens has an open door policy. The dedicated careers website and Facebook page provide current information about careers. You can sign up for the careers newsletter through the careers website (mountalexandercollegecareers.com).
