    Do you know the answer

    The future workplace will bring new experiences and expectations.

    Our young people today will work in jobs that are yet to be created, use technology that has not yet been invented and face social, economic and environmental challenges that are yet to be anticipated.

    They will require a portfolio of skills and capabilities to make well informed career decisions throughout life.

    High quality career education builds resilient individuals who can adapt to the changing nature of work, managing multiple careers throughout their lifetime, adapting to their circumstances and needs.

    As part of this interactive event, discussions will be held around topics such as:

    • What is real career education and why more than ever today does it need to be a priority in schools.
    • The need to rethink the traditional focus in Year 10 and start the conversations and exploration much younger.
    • Acknowledge the important role that parents play and discuss how we involve them and empower them.
    • Why industry engagement through partnerships with schools is an important element of a quality career education program.

    You will also hear from some of the organisations that have been involved in projects to support the National Career Education Strategy. These include the CSIRO, FYA, ACARA and ARACY.

    Who should attend?

      National Careers Week 2020

      National Careers Week is an initiative of the Career Industry Council of Australia and aims to celebrate careers, career development, career development services, and career development practitioners and to promote the economic, social and personal benefits of career development.

      Career development is a process of managing learning, work and leisure to progress through life. It includes gaining and using the skills and knowledge needed to plan and make informed decisions about education, training, and work. Everyday decisions and priorities affect career development. Ultimately, career development is about much more than jobs – it is about how to live your life.

      The objectives of National Careers Week are to:

      • Develop community awareness of the concept, benefit, and value of career development.
      • Raise aspirations, challenge stereotypes, and broaden horizons about careers.
      • Highlight the need for ongoing reskilling and upskilling to support careers throughout life.
      • Identify the changing nature of work and its impact on all Australians.
      • Showcase industries and the career opportunities available in them.
      • Provide opportunities to partner with key stakeholders.
