  • Revise your study skills and get your study plan into place ASAP. There is no time to waste in Year
  • If you still haven’t discovered what you love, time to get stuck in to making a decision OR start looking at opportunities to expand your knowledge and experience through a Gap Year.

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.
