For young people finishing school in 2020, the Your Careers website has a School Leavers Support page available, along with a School Leavers Information Kit – Your Career – What’s next for you?
The kit provides young people with tailored information about education, training and work options as they navigate the changing labour market.
Key sections include:
- Help to build your future career – Information about further education and training and industries across Australia.
- Help with short-term options – Identifying current skills, undertaking short-term education and training, and options to pursue different opportunities like work experience or volunteering.
- Help to pursue your goal – Financial assistance, starting your first new job and local careers information.
There is also a School Leavers Information Service which provides school leavers with two levels of careers support:
- help to navigate the School Leavers Information Kit, access and use the Your Career website or be referred to relevant government programs or support services.
- where needed, a personalised career guidance session with a qualified career practitioner for up to 45 minutes.
