Current Skill Shortages in Australia

The Federal Government keeps an eye on which jobs are the easiest to get. This is good to keep in mind when you are thinking of your future career. For 2013 this is the current situation:

Employers recruiting in 2013 generally filled their vacancies with ease and had large fields of applicants from whom to choose. In 2013,

  • employers filled a higher proportion of vacancies than they have at any time in the last seven years
  • job seekers applying for skilled vacancies faced relatively strong competition, with an average of 13.9 applicants per vacancy.

There is less competition in the following areas:

  • Automotive Trades
  • Food Trades
  • Hairdressers

There is a large amount of competition in the following jobs:

  • School Teachers
  • ICT Professions
  • Nurses

Perth is in the top three most competitive job markets in Australia.

Harmony Day Festival Success

Thank you for all the staff and students who made last week’s festival such a successful and fun day. We hope that you got to try something new, such as the European craze of bubble soccer, an Italian pizza bianca, belly dancing, sumo wrestling, boomerang dot painting, crocodile sausages, handling an Australian snake, umbrella painting, or Asian or Middle Eastern food.

These were just some of the highlights of the festival. I hope that you learnt something new about another culture and will continue to explore our amazing world and the many cultures within it.

Many thanks to the staff and students who made it possible!

Uni success for Sevenoaks students

Sevenoaks Senior College was the top state school in WA in regards to how many of our year 12 ATAR students received their first university preferences for 2014. 87% of our 43 students sitting university entrance exams got into the university course of their choice, which was equal third in all schools in the state! A record 100% of students who applied for UWA entrance were successful and 90% for Curtin.

The driving reason behind this success is due to the career counselling that is offered at Sevenoaks, provided by Mrs Brenda Earl. The support and advice that is offered to our students is one of the best in WA. Mrs Earl is available for individual counselling appointments Monday to Friday.

Congratulations to all our graduated students as they embark on their new higher education journey.

Aboriginal Innovative Schools Launch

Over the past couple of years, Sevenoaks Senior College and Yule Brook College and their Aboriginal communities have been developing a partnership agreement that was launched in our College courtyard on October 31. The Aboriginal School Community Partnership Agreement is underpinned by the following principles:

Successful transitions lead to successful life outcomes.
Student needs are at the heart of all program connections and mentoring across the colleges.
Our communities are committed to learning together.
Opportunities to share, understnad and celebrate the local Noongar culture are conducted in a manner that is respectful and consistent with the reconciliation process.
Respect for the values of cross-cultural learning develops and promotes effective communication.
The launch was a celebratory event with special guests, including Ken Wyatt AM MP, and students and staff from both schools. We were treated to fantastic performances from student groups, the Black Swan Theatre and the Yonga Boys, and a unique symbolic mosaic, created by a local indiginous artist, was unveiled.
