Career Education at Paraparaumu College is a whole school responsibility. It is being designed to meet the needs of all our students, and involve the local and wider community. Our mission is to assist all students to make informed decisions about their future education, training and work pathways.

Our Transition and Careers Department team members are available for appointments to talk about your options while you are studying and as you prepare to leave College. Parents are also welcome to attend these appointments. Our College Deans also have lots of great advice about what subjects you need to be taking for tertiary study or employment requirements.
