Leaving School in WA? You can get free career help

If you have just left Year 12 and don’t know what to do next year, there is free, expert advice available to help you to come out of your cocoon and turn into a butterfly.

Maybe Uni?

If you THINK you might go to uni but don’t know what to do, check out the Alternative Pathways to Uni.

Most of these courses are free and while you are doing them you learn how to do research, write assignments and you find out about different courses.

  1. Check out the different WA alternative pathways,
  2. Pick your uni and enrol in 4 week or one semester course
  3. Work with career advisors while you are at the uni.

Maybe TAFE?

The range of careers through TAFE is too great to mention. A VET course can get you into the high demand cyber security industry or into a specialist health career without getting a degree. There are also apprenticeships and traineeships that you expect to get from TAFE. See:

How to blitz your apprenticeship interview

This is how you get an apprenticeship in WA

Go to a Jobs and Skills Centre which is probably on the same campus as your local TAFE. They have diagnostic tools that will help them to point you in the right direction.

Lots of TAFE courses are free or low cost in 2021.
