Careers Department

By Paula McMecking | Posted: Wednesday June 1, 2022

The Careers Department is a fantastic way to find the latest information about job opportunities, study options, trips, scholarships and more.

Year 12/13 Gateway students are commencing their work experience placements this term, where they complete up to one day a week of work experience alongside completing industry-based unit standards back at school.

In Term 2 we have liaison officer visits scheduled by Ara, Otago University, Camp America, and the NZ Defence force. We also have two field trips planned to Dunedin and Christchurch.

If you are leaving school this year and wish to keep up to date with job opportunities, available apprenticeships, study options, Tertiary Institution visits, trips and webinars, and scholarships then you are encouraged to follow the Careers Department on social media - Facebook (Timaru Boys High School Careers Department) or Instagram (tbhs_careers), as well as google classroom for invitations to trips away.

New Tertiary provider and career information is being received weekly, so feel free to pop into the Careers Department to have a look around.
