Helping West Australians to Succeed

Career News and Support for Schools

Leaving school is one of the few giant leaps you make in your life. As you leave school you can face a yawning chasm of uncertainty in front of you.

If you know school leavers you know stories like these:

Katherine’s school gave her NO HELP in choosing what uni course to do.

Dylan just gave up in Year 12. He lost direction.

Tom didn’t know what to do, so he started uni. He dropped out, then he thought he was a failure and got really depressed.

We got so worried about how stressed Sarah was getting that we let her leave school before she did her final exams.

I am pissed off that students aren’t prepared for life beyond schools.

You don’t have to get a great ATAR or even to finish your WACE to succeed.

  • Universities and TAFE colleges are breaking down barriers to enrolling in many courses. You can try alternative pathways as soon as you leave school or go to work for a while then apply for entry directly via an interview.
  • You can check online career quizzes for help deciding what direction to explore.
  • There are hundreds of career events and places to go to find your options.
  • There are scholarships, competitions, clubs and labs that broaden your options.
  • Governments provide free career information both online and face to face.

In Focus Careers links you to information and advice that will help you to build your bridge to your future.
