150 places are available for 2020. We will contribute up to $6,550 per successful career practitioner towards the course fee charged by providers for completing this qualification. We will also provide up to two days CRT per study grant recipient to support their involvement in coursework.
Expressions of interest open on
23 July 2019.
To express your interest, complete a Career education study grants form and email response to
email@example.com, by 5:00pm, Friday 6 September 2019.
Career education study grants
To be eligible to apply for a study grant, you must meet all of the following criteria:
- You must be currently employed in a Victorian government secondary school, primary/secondary school, specialist school or English language setting
- You can demonstrate that you are directly delivering career education at your school or will be in the near future (this must be verified by your principal)
- You have ongoing or fixed-term employment in the school beyond completion of the qualification (verified by your principal).
In the event there more applicants than places available, we will prioritise applicants from schools who currently do not have any staff with a career education qualification.
Transforming career education in Victorian government schools
The Victorian Government is investing $109 million to transform career education to help students make better career and pathway decisions and prepare them for life beyond school.
This investment will provide a suite of initiatives to support schools to strengthen career education, enabling students to make informed course and career decisions, understand the connection between school and future careers, and develop their skills and knowledge to successfully manage their careers throughout life.
