Assisting Career Development

The resources within this page are considered to be essential for assisting career development for secondary students but can apply to anyone.

Students are supported to self-access a range of careers resources and tools found below which enable them to actively engage in career exploration, planning, and management to ensure they gain direction and ownership of their lives.

Parents and carers can assist their child's career development by talking with them in a supportive manner. Helpful information on how to do this can be found at the myfuture assist your child page

Anyone wishing to assist students' career development can visit the myfuture assist others page
