About the program
Year 9 is an ideal time for students to take a moment to reflect on who they are, and what they might want from a career. It's a time for self-discovery and an opportunity to think about their strengths and find new ones.
Discover - Students begin with Morrisby, the online discovery tool designed to help them learn more about themselves – their values, preferences and skills – giving them a better understanding of where their strengths lie. These personal insights help open up a variety of possible career pathways, specifically tailored to who they are.
Develop - It's now time for students to share what they have discovered. My Career Insights allows students to talk one-on-one with an independent career counsellor about any initial ideas and thoughts. This discussion will help them to set realistic goals, and start putting actions in place to continue their career journey.
Drive - My Career Insights aims to give students the confidence to start making more informed choices and decisions around their future schooling and widen their perspective on potential career options. It puts them in the driver's seat of their career journey.
