It is difficult for young people to find work but it is tougher for deaf people.

Melbourne’s TradeBlock Cafe is training young deaf people to gain hospitality skills so that they can go into the mainstream hospitality industry. Blueprint for Living has done a story telling how the owner came up with the idea and showing how much success she is having. cafe-for-training-deaf-people

A fantastic careers teacher may have changed my life. I've spent my career going from job to job. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing. I then became an English teacher. Teaching has been the foundation for a lot of my career. I went into TAFE where I designed participation programs, then into HR, then developed training programs for industry.  I taught e-commerce and developed systems to make it easier for organisations to work together. I kept going for scholarships and going back to uni along the way. At one time I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks, and discovered it was tricky having a conversation about THAT with anyone I knew!! I now focus on delivering information that helps careers teachers to be fantastic. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter.
