Mrs Fiona Gatey – Manager
Vocational Education & Training

 “My job at Greenwood College is to help students in their successful transition from school to University, TAFE, Apprenticeships and or employment. VET programs at Greenwood College give our students the best opportunity to reach their career goals. Upper school subject selection is a major part of my portfolio as this ties in with the career counselling process required to guide students into the most appropriate career pathway. For parents and students,  I have put together a series of links which will hopefully give you a one stop access to information that will help you with your son or daughter’s transition from school to the world of work”
