Exploring post-school options
Apprenticeships offer nationally recognised qualifications and paid training pathways to hundreds of different careers, from traditional trades to new and emerging occupations.
Vocational education and training (VET)
Students wanting to gain practical work skills or a qualification towards a particular occupation can explore a wide variety of VET programs. VET offers flexible, targeted training options and can sometimes create a pathway to university.
Alternative pathways to university
In addition to VET, other pathways to university such as bridging or enabling courses may be available for students who don’t think they’ll qualify for direct entry.
Students looking for work or considering an apprenticeship can learn how to produce quality applications, prepare for interviews, and more.
Still considering ideas
My career profile helps students identify their interests, skills and values, then explore a range of suggested occupations to find out about employment prospects, training pathways and more. Results can also be exported and shared to support further career conversations.
