Online resources to help future careers of young Australians
A new Schooltowork website has been developed to equip parents, employers and schools with the resources needed to support secondary students making decisions about their future career.
Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP said the website was part of the Morrison Government’s Future Ready: a student focused National Career Education Strategy.
“The website was developed so students can make informed decisions and have access to the best career options possible,” Mr Vasta said
“Toolkits and industry based articles will be made available for parents and schools so they can have open discussions about career options, including post-school studies, apprenticeships and examples of transitional programs supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.”
Minister for Employment, Skills, Small Business and Family Business Senator Michaelia Cash said these resources would help students make more informed decisions about their future.
“We want young people to know all about their learning and career options so they can choose something that suits them,” Minister Cash said. Assistant Minister for Vocational Education, Training and Apprenticeships Steve Irons MP said the Schooltowork website was one of the many Morrison Government initiatives to get more Australians into meaningful work and empower their future career. “All these strategies will work together to provide accurate and up to date information for young people, families and career educators,” Mr Irons said.
