Baradene College hosts a yearly Careers evening for Year 10 – 13 Baradene College students.  This event involves around 40 presenters from a wide range of occupations who speak to the student community about their pathway into their current careers. The speakers offer advice, talk about their experiences in their chosen career and offer insight into occupations that are of interest to our students. 

Students entering Years 11 – 13 in the following year are encouraged to attend this night. We hope that listening to the presenters from a variety of careers will enable her to make course choices with confidence. Parents are welcome to attend.

Welcome to the 2022 Baradene Careers Evening!

Wednesday 10 August 2022 | 6pm - 7.30pm


Firstly, a huge thank you to the 40 guest speakers, who will give up their time to talk about their own career journeys from when they left school until the present day. They will offer advice, talk about their experiences in their chosen career and offer an insight into occupations that may be of interest to our students.

This year we request that everyone arrives at 5:45pm and moves to their first venue so the speaker can begin at 6:00pm. There will be no formal group welcome.

Sessions commence according to the schedule below, with 10 minutes between each presentation to allow time for students and parents to move to the next session. Each presentation will last for 20 minutes, which includes time for students and parents to ask specific questions. Please arrive at your chosen session in good time. If a session is full, please wait until the next session with that speaker.

In addition to our speakers, student liaison officers from Auckland, Otago, Canterbury and Victoria Universities will be represented on the night and each will present an overview of their university as outlined in the programme. They will be happy to answer your questions about courses, financial scholarships, entry criteria for courses and halls of residence.

Our Careers team staff, Nicky Burnett and Alex Lonergan will be available on the night, but if you would like to book time to discuss anything more in-depth, please make an appointment to come and see us. Our details are below.

We hope you enjoy the evening and find it insightful; whether you’re a senior student narrowing down your career direction after school, or a younger student still exploring a wide range of options and gathering ideas.
