Leaving High School Poster. Four tips to smooth your way.

There is too much information for high school leavers.

“Go to this uni.”

“Get that apprenticeship.”

“Take a gap year.”

Download this poster of 4 simple tips that help smooth your way as you leave high school:

Jobs and Skills Centres

Jobs and Skills Centre

Jobs and Skills Centres help you to find your right career direction and find the right course at TAFE or at uni. They can help you to write your resume, improve your interview skills, find the right course and even find a job.

Every high school leaver can find support at a Jobs and Skills Centre.

Award Wages

An Award sets out the minimum pay and conditions for a particular industry or occupation

If you are working for a friend, or doing gardening in your own small business you, probably won’t get award wages.

Big employers like McDonalds and Coles pay award wages. If you ever earn above $450/week you will be paid superannuation.

Make Connections

Wherever you go, you can find help through people you meet.

If you have a plan, your connections will help you to achieve your goal.

If you don’t have a plan, your connections may help you to discover opportunities.

Meet up with them soon. Meet up with them often.

They want to see you.
