Senior School Student with Parent

Senior school students are woefully unprepared for life after school.

WE want our kids to do whatever makes them happy….

THEY don’t know what that is.


In Focus Careers is for parents, grandparents and teachers who want to help prepare their school students for life after school.

Thanks for the latest e-mail Bev, and for all the information and inspiring ideas over the year. Since I have become a part of  the (In Focus Careers) network I have grown in knowledge and motivation to really make a difference for our young people.

Information Sessions for Parents, Grandparents and Families 

If you are drowning in career information you will not know what bits are good, what bits are rubbish and what bits you need to help your students to reach their potential.

What is it you need to know??

  • How to make sure your Year 10 succeeds in senior high school?
  • How to help your Year 11 to adjust to ATAR demands.
  • How to support your Year 12 in their vital senior year.


I provide information sessions on university, vocational education and apprenticeships, getting into medicine, how to have a gap year…

These presentations provide you with the right information at the right time to help your students think critically and make wise choices about their path when they leave school.

I help middle and primary school students to develop bold career goals.

HELP!! How can I support my student?

For a FREE consultation email me.

Teachers’ Workshops

In even the most enlightened schools there is little understanding of the crucial need for comprehensive careers education. Careers educators are typically isolated and have little power to influence school policies and procedures within the school.

Emerging models of careers education must be incorporated into school priorities if we are to prepare students to be ready for the changing world after school.

Teachers’ workshops showcase the efforts of trailblazers who are piloting new ways of preparing students for 21st century careers. Careers educators learn about new teaching resources, extra curricular opportunities for growth and how to engage community and industry in collaborative career development endeavours.

To arrange a free consultation on the best way to increase your capacity to provide current, reliable and useful careers information to 21st Century Citizens contact me.


It is easy to get worried about where young people are going to end up when robots and artificial intelligence take over jobs.

I get really excited about how the world of work is evolving and blog about it all of the time. You can join the conversations by subscribing to blog posts.
