Although students may not begin to seriously consider their career options until Years 9, 10 and 11, it is important be aware of the skills and qualifications that are required for different industries, and also to be aware of the opportunities that are available in the local area.

WBCA Students have access to a bespoke Careers Portal (found by logging into the Student Portal).
