Student career planning webinars and lesson plans

Lesson plans and webinars are available to help teachers focus on career planning in Term 4

The Department is offering lesson plans and a series of webinars throughout Term 4 to help teachers make career planning a priority.

Given the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the labour market, it is vital that all senior secondary students focus on career planning and establishing Career Action Plans. Career planning can help provide students with hope and a sense of optimism about their future.

Professional development resources and optional webinars have been tailored for students and school staff alike, and include career planning tips, lesson plans and market insights from experts in the field.
