Understanding the Training maze can be confusing. The October Careers Newsletter has a 10 page feature demystifying Vocational Education and Training for teachers, students and their families.

Training isn’t a vanilla option. There are different levels starting from entry or re-entry level through to specialist short upskilling courses and university pathway programs.

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.
