Supporting our students

St Peters is very proud to possess a comprehensive, structured Career Development Program and proactive counselling service. Our Careers and Counselling staff work closely with students to ensure that they are well prepared for the future and feel safe and confident while attending the College.

Career Guidance

The St Peters Indooroopilly Career Development Program is evidence based, holistic and supports student exploration as they navigate subject selection and post-school decision making. The well-resourced Careers Centre, together with our professionally qualified and experienced Careers Counsellor, serve to provide a proactive, responsive and collaborative Careers Counselling service.

Our supportive Career Guidance team work closely with students to enhance their awareness of self. This includes knowledge of their Natural Abilities (obtained from testing undertaken in Year 10) and an awareness of the evolving and complex world of work beyond the classroom. The team ensure that all students are aware of the external influences impacting on future employment, such as Artificial Intelligence, globalisation, technology advancements and factors such as the UN Sustainable Goals.

Our Careers Development Program includes:

  • Natural Ability Testing and the use of other inventories to enhance knowledge of ‘self’
  • Structured ‘Career Development’ lessons for all Year 10s
  • Subject selection guidance and SET Planning
  • One-on-one counselling sessions, academic mentoring and tracking to support identified goals
  • Presentations from tertiary institutions and industry specialists
  • Access to current and diverse resources for future planning

St Peters students are encouraged to explore their options from an early age; undertake work experience; and talk to industry experts to facilitate future pathways. In the leadup to their graduation, students can access support when seeking to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship, or when applying for domestic, interstate and international institutions.


The Counselling team at St Peters is comprised of qualified, dedicated counselling professionals. Alongside the Chaplaincy team, they provide specialist guidance in personal matters to all St Peters students. Our counsellors are concerned with the wellbeing of the individual. They are also available to boarders and their families at all times.
