Career planning at school and beyond

Schools conduct career education programs to provide students with the opportunity to start thinking about potential careers. These programs encourage students to explore their personal interests, identify strengths, and understand their preferred ways of working.

Students can access free online career exploration tools such as myfuture External Link and CareerMe External Link to explore their options. In addition, Year 10 students can use their Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority Learner Unique Identifier (LUI) to log into the Student Connect External Link resource to gain access to their learning account and results, as well as information and links to help them explore future education, training and career pathways.

In Year 10, students are supported to develop their Senior Education and Training (SET) plan in consultation with their parents/carers. The SET plan maps out a plan of action for students to achieve their education goal or intended learning option (ILO), and supports them to remain on track for success in senior secondary, post-school education and work.

Students should speak to their school's Guidance Officer, Career Counsellor External Link, Head of Department - Senior Schooling, teachers and other school-based staff about work experience opportunities and post-school pathways.

Visit Career advice and planning resources External Link to seek more information about employability skills and further education and training opportunities available after school, including fee-free training External Link in high priority areas for Year 12 graduates.
