Holly sees a big shift in her students’ focus after iTrack
“Students of this age group face a lot of big decisions as they head into senior years,” said high school teacher, Holly.“Having this focused program helps students to better plan their path throughout the whole of senior schooling – rather than trial and error in subject selection.
“This style of mentoring helps students to talk about things that they want. There is no pressure from parental expectations or standards set by the school.
“Their mentor is an impartial person who is only concerned with what the student wants and how they can achieve this. It is also beneficial for those students who have difficulty expressing themselves face-to-face with adults, and it can make big topics less daunting by removing the fear of judgement or disappointment.
“They become more savvy with university prerequisites and navigating information about employment which can be found online. They also take more opportunities to add items to their resume, such as extra-curricular activities or programs at school for which their teamwork and leadership skills are recognised.”
