Preparing Students for Life After School

Don’t Get on the Uni Bus

Leave a comment

If you don’t know what to do at uni DON’T GO THERE. The uni bus isn’t the only ride out of school…. And the uni bus fare is a high price to pay when you don’t know where you want to go. Fullscreen capture 28082017 70902 PM.bmp

Two reports out today show that students are DROPPING OUT OF UNI in record numbers and that graduates are TAKING LONGER TO FIND JOBS in their chosen fields.

  ABC news has a great report here.

If you don’t know what to do in 2018 go to the Careers Centre in Perth or in regional centres and find out about your options. If you decide to do a VET course ask about government priority courses (courses on the State Priority Occupation List  – SPOL). They could save you a fortune.

SEE SOMETHING! GET EXCITED! TELL EVERYONE!!! That pretty well sums up my approach to life. As I find the next bright new shiny course, unbelievable job offer or prediction about the world of work.......I now apply a "Bulldust Filter" honed through years of mistakes. I don't want my grandkids to be blinded by information or be to scammed by a con artist selling a quick course to success..... so I filter the bulldust so that they get the right information at the right time to help them to engage with the emerging world. I share my filtered knowledge because... I SEE SOMETHING. GET EXCITED. TELL EVERYONE.
