Career education and counselling is important for all young people. The Victorian Careers Curriculum Framework offers a progression in career learning that is relevant to all young people.
Teachers, trainers and careers practitioners working with Koorie young people, English as an Additional Language (EAL) young people, young people from low SES communities and young people with disabilities will consider carefully the particular needs of their students and adapt the learning outcomes in the Framework to provide relevant and appropriately challenging activities. Often this will involve choosing learning outcomes from an earlier section or from more than one section. Staff in diverse educational settings may choose to focus on a limited number of aspects of the age related Framework, and include additional topics particularly relevant to their students needs. For guidelines in delivering the Framework to targeted groups of young people, please see:
Teachers, trainers and careers practitioners can find additional support from the Department to supplement their career education and counselling programs from the following resources:
English as an Additional Language (EAL)
Low Socio-Economic Status (SES)
