The guide helps teachers develop supportive learning environments that focus on the voices and needs of all students and explore possibilities for informed career choices. This is complemented by a set of training videos with practical tips for supporting specific groups of vulnerable or marginalised students.
Resources for Parents & Carers
The guide for parents and carers illustrates how the world of work has changed, and the implications this change has on young people’s career choices. It contains helpful advice on how to support young people when they are thinking about future careers, with examples and suggested activities.
Resources for Young People
The interactive online game helps young people discover their skills and explore possible future jobs and careers. Using a space scenario, players travel between several weird and wonderful planets to find out more about themselves. The helpful professor then recommends jobs based on their skills.
