Why a tertiary experience may be the ideal choice for your next School Camp

Heading into the senior years of High School can be a big step for students. How do you make sure they are prepared for what’s ahead, not only through the VCE program, but also the years to follow?

Incorporating a tertiary experience for your school camp can provide a range of benefits to your students setting them up for their final years, whilst also getting them thinking about different options for the future.

Whether the camp is compulsory or optional for your students, they will leave with new skills and knowledge, having had a fantastic time with their peers, and memories to last a lifetime.

So what are the benefits of a tertiary experience?

  • Give students a taste of University life
    • Holding your sessions in a lecture theatre, staying in University accommodation, having a campus tour, or speaking with staff and students are all fantastic opportunities to get a taste of University life. Studying at University is a lot different to High School, and allowing students the opportunity to witness this first hand can provide confidence and understanding of what may lie ahead.
  • Nurture students future aspirations with career sessions and real life experiences
    • Incorporating themed career sessions and real life experiences can give your students a taste of different occupation opportunities and pathways to get there. Speak to experts in the field of interest or participant in a practical session to uncover new opportunities and where their path may lead. State of the art facilities, including nursing labs, fitness testing and more provide amazing opportunities for students to immerse themselves in their subject of interest.
  • Expert study skill sessions can set your students up for their VCE
    • With our network of experts and skilled advisors, we can offer a range of study skills sessions to incorporate in your program, topics like effective studying, motivation, wellbeing or time management. All invaluable skills to encourage your students in achieving their best.
