Don’t Get on the Uni Bus

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.

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.

Hi I'm Bev. I write, speak and lobby about career opportunities for school students. I really care about kids leaving school. After 12 years of care and guidance the system pops them out the school gate to fend for themselves. My work aims to smooth the path from that gate so that ALL students know which way to go.
