In Unit 5
I was first in family to go to uni. Parents at the time clueless but supportive both emotionally and financially. Grandparents were dead against it. My Nan thought I should get a job in the local supermarket, not move away to go to uni. My main driver was not wanting to be like my mum who didn't work and always had to ask dad for money. I wanted to get a good job where I was financially independent.

I have found that many first in family students are first to complete HSC, then TAFE or University or apprenticeship. Particularly in my current school community where the general aspiration is an apprenticeship or work for the mill. I will be interested to see down the track if taking students to a university campus (or multiple by the end of Yr 12) starting in Year 5 makes a difference in our schools data.
