The Review of senior secondary pathways into work, further education and training is one of eight national priority initiatives included in the National School Reform Agreement. It provides advice and recommendations to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Education Council on how senior secondary students can be better supported to choose the pathway into work, further education and/or training that is right for them.
The final report – Looking to the future – Report of the Review of senior secondary pathways into work, further education and training, sets out key findings and recommendations on helping young people navigate their senior years and enter further study or the workforce.
Some of the key recommendations include:
- Introduce a Learner Profile that will identify a student’s range of skills, knowledge and experiences both from inside and outside the classroom.
- Develop a national strategy with the Skills Council to deliver VET to secondary students.
- Strengthen career guidance by creating a network of hubs providing individualised career guidance with an initial focus on regional and remote areas.
