Strengthened career planning

The strengthened career planning resource is a planning document designed to:

  • translate a student’s dreams and aspirations into specific learning goals
  • identify relevant work experience opportunities
  • give a snapshot of a student’s work-related and employability skills at a point in time.

This helps students, their parents and teachers engage in career conversations about what the student can do, their strengths, and readiness for work.
