In Focus Careers

Careers Newsletter for WA Students

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

THEY don’t know what that is!!!

Senior school students are woefully unprepared for life after school.


In Focus Careers helps school leavers to find what they want to do by delivering clear, useful careers information.

Careers Newsletter

I have found your material invaluable.  The information you have put together is thorough – a one-stop-shop in a sea of information that is out there.  I have utilised this information on a regular basis with others throughout the school.

Careers Guidance

There are three In Focus Careers System Career Guidance packages.

1. Introductory Career Guidance Package

If you are unsure of what you want to do and don’t know where to start looking this is the Package for you.

The Introductory system identifies your fundamental values.

Through the Introductory system you will come to understand what is driving your decision making. Armed with this knowledge you can consciously and deliberately make decisions which harmonise with your authentic self. Your progress along a path that uniquely matches your values footprint will be faster and self fulfilling.

I have been using this technique for almost 30 years with hundreds of clients. If you truly want to discover what is driving you so that you can make clear decisions, this is the session for you.

The Introductory system involves a 90 minute consultation. A written report of the consultation provides recommendations that support ongoing personal growth and goal achievement.

2. Exploratory Career Guidance Package

If you have an idea of what you want to do but don’t know how to get started this is the Package for you.

The world of work is changing so fast. Jobs are changing and disappearing. There may not be a job at the end of an expensive university course but online qualifications may lack credibility. Knowing what to do requires expert guidance.

Through the Exploratory system you provide the inspiration and ideas about what you might like to do and I use my knowledge and networks to identify opportunities, prospects and pathways.

I write the In Focus Careers newsletter which delivers news of new courses, research, trends and changes in funding. I use my knowledge of the latest developments to inform the exploration of options with you.

The Exploratory Career Guidance Package involves a 90 minute consultation. A written report of the consultation then identifies options and their ramifications for your  consideration.

3. Making Ideas Happen

Once a career choice has been made I work in partnership with you to develop a detailed project plan which identifies priorities, resources, dependencies and an action plan. This detailed plan is your map to your unique career adventure.

I have employed and taught project management strategies for decades. It is the best way to create a plan that considers all tasks, provides a path to the future and maintains flexibility for new developments.

This session can take half a day and requires good quality coffee!!

Careers Information Sessions for Parents 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.

Careers Workshops for Teachers

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.

Careers Blog – for those who care about Careers

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.
