Careers Festival Proves a Resounding Success
Our Careers Department and KTTC worked collaboratively for many months to organise the inaugural King's Careers Festival for our High School community. The event aimed to provide valuable career guidance to our Year 9-12 students and was the largest of its kind on the Gold Coast. With over 45 exhibitors from tertiary providers across Southeast Queensland, including universities, trade schools, and emergency service operators like the Queensland police, ambulance and fire service, attendees had access to a wealth of resources and insights. There were also information sessions to assist families with understanding ATAR and QCE information, and these were well attended throughout the evening.
The event's success was evident by the impressive turnout of over 300 King’s families, and it was exciting to see all guests seizing the opportunity to interact with exhibitors and gain a clearer understanding of their future career options. As the evening ended, attendees left King's armed with newfound knowledge and a clearer vision of their post-secondary pathways. The positive impact of this event set a strong precedent for future career-focused initiatives as our College continues to propel students towards prosperous and fulfilling careers.
