The National Careers Institute will be designing and developing a national careers-focused digital platform, to streamline and strengthen the way careers information is delivered in Australia.
The Institute is co-designing the digital platform by consulting with people of all ages and all stages in their career journey; those who influence careers; employers who provide careers; and those who formally advise on careers.
The Institute has designed the Career Journey Survey to help understand what type of careers information individuals need and want, what influences their decision making and how and why they might want that information presented and delivered to them.
