School Leavers Guide
As we approach the end of 2015, many young adults in our region are preparing to finish school and embark on their careers.
It’s an exciting but nonetheless challenging time as they consider their options after school, whether that is further study, an apprenticeship or other form of employment. To help these young people and their families navigate their way through this important decision making process, the office of the Hon John Cobb has prepared the 2015 School Leavers Guide.
In this guide there are sections about career development, further education and training options, financial assistance and useful contact details.
