Changing the university bias

We all know there is a cultural bias towards university but university isn’t always the best option. For some students, we actually hinder their opportunities by not encouraging them into a vocational pathway.

Tips for choosing an HSC that's right for you!

Now is the time Year 10 Students and Parents should be thinking about what you’ll be working towards in your last years of schooling. Read some of Newman’s top tips to help you along the way.

Experience a 'Different Class'

The courses on offer at Newman are not your ‘Traditional HSC’ subjects.

Take a peak at some of the ‘hands on learning’ opportunities available.

Celebrating 40 Years Leading the Way!

40 years of experience has taught us a lot, most importantly Vocational Education cannot work as an “add on” to a school.  We have a unique winning formula, that no other school in the region has.  Newman has been built on decades of experience and being recognised as a National leader in Vocational Education.

What Newman Alumni have to say…

Newman was the best decision that I could have ever made. Not only did I create life long friendships with amazing people, I created friendships with all the teachers, even those that weren’t mine. Through the school’s work placement system I gained three jobs, one of which I am currently working at.  I am currently working in childcare and on the path to University to study teaching. I am so lucky to have had these opportunities! Thanks to everyone at Newman.

At first, I wasn’t really sure what to expect attending Newman and how I would go finishing without an ATAR. My uncertainty changed as I found myself achieving and thriving more than I could at my other school. I was able to experience different  career options and eliminate those areas that didn’t suit me. I was given plenty of assistance and was thoroughly informed about university opportunities and application forms.

I am now in my first year of a bachelor of Criminal Justice, all accomplished without the overloading stress of a traditional school and whilst undertaking my HSC and other Nationally recognised certificates. I’m so glad I chose to study at Newman it really was an HSC like no other!

My time at Newman showed me how different school can be. I tried areas of workplacement in fields I wasn’t sure I would need. Being exposed to these different experiences gave me other skills that will help me be a better person throughout my life. I made a whole lot of new friends, that I will have for life, and generally feel that I am a better student and person for attending this College. I thank Newman for everything they offered me and how they helped me grow as a person.

When I studied Certificate II Metal & Engineering at Newman College, I was involved in a project that created a prototype of an underwater living space, which we called the Pod. This was an amazing experience as we got to create something meaningful, not to mention large, and we got exhibit the end product at a national event and meet the Dutch designers.

Working on real projects from scratch has really helped me understand true scope of works and the demands of the industry.
