Today I sat with over a hundred other parents and students and listened as the teachers at my son’s school talked us through the year 10 subject selection process.
There were lots of V words like VET, VETiS, VCAL, VCE it was VERY confusing!!
At the end of the hour session we were told to not panic!! Like that is even an option? How can you not panic? How can you be calm about something as important as your child’s future?
I think that this whole process could be made so much more easier if there was some system in place that allows you to see what career paths require which subjects. There probably is something like this available but we haven’t yet been made aware of it, so for the time being there is much for us to process.
Hopefully by the time the twins get to this point I will be expert on all of this, but for tonight I’m just a confused mum frantically reading through endless brochures trying to arm myself with as much information as possible to help guide my child through this daunting process.
