Careers Program


Lilydale High School’s Career Practitioners are Tim Kogelman and Craig Harris. They are available to assist students to make informed decisions about career choices and choices for study. Their role is to help our students identify their educational goals, employment goals and the pathways that can travel along to achieve these goals.

Parents and Guardians are welcome to contact the school and arrange a careers interview with a Career Practitioner if your child is experiencing difficulties and needs assistance in succeeding at school, completing their schooling to the highest level possible (Year 10 as a minimum) and in gathering information about potential careers.
