Careers

Welcome to Careers

The Careers Office is located at the front of the Pavilion Building. Students are welcome to make an individual careers appointment with the Careers Advisor Mrs Sarah Shepheard by dropping in and filling out an appointment card, or by emailing her directly. Parents and whānau can also email or phone to book a time to attend with their son.

As students progress through school, they are encouraged to develop greater awareness about themselves, explore career pathways of interest and ultimately make informed decisions for their future. A range of programmes are on offer at Liston to support boys in this process and help them make successful a transition from school into tertiary, training or employment.
