Careers and employment portal


In Semester 2, Year 10 students devote significant time and consideration to their Year 11 and 12 subject selections as well as post-school study and employment options.

This has included the opportunity to complete a Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan Interview. 

In 2020, our Year 10 students were not able to attend the Brisbane Careers & Employment Expo, which was postponed to May 2021 due to COVID considerations. In lieu of attending the Expo, Indooroopilly State High School has put together this wealth of resources about university, employment and training options for students to investigate. While this was put together with Year 10s in mind, it is of relevance to other year levels, particularly Years 11 and 12 students. 

Many of the university websites referenced below include recordings and information from their 2020 virtual open days. Also contained within the list we have compiled is a link to the Brisbane Careers & Employment Expo website, which includes links to the exhibitors.

We hope that the resources below are useful to students and parents in considering future pathways.
