Publishing is like putting your baby out into the world

If I hadn’t put so much work into this Handbook I wouldn’t be so worried.

I keep delaying putting out my Magic Happens – Year 10 Careers Handbook as I am not sure how she will cope out in the world.

Give me a couple of days to go over it ONE MORE TIME, then I will send it out.

How school students will keep winning the 21st century career race

Students are already ahead of the pack when it comes to winning in the 21st century workforce.

School leavers aren’t looking for leaders to follow, they are looking for teams to join.

Forbes Magazine predicted 5 Important Ways Jobs Will Change. 

1. Fluid Gigs

WHY STUDENTS ARE WINNING

Over 60% of senior school students have part time jobs as well as their full time study.

  • They have at least one part time job.
  • They are flexible, often having different jobs or they do more work over holidays.
  • They aren’t fussy about how they earn money – they freelance doing gardening, washing cars, walking dogs, baby sitting.
  • They tap into their network of family and friends to build their network of clients.
  • They have a team of friends who are also flexible and able to work together on a project.

TIPS

  • Grow your skills by organising your friends into teams of babysitters, office cleaners, gardeners or whatever opportunity you can see.
  • Make as many contacts as you can at school. Make contacts with other students, work experience providers, sport coaches.

2. Decentralized  Workforce

WHY STUDENTS ARE WINNING

Sophisticated social media skills and knowledge of project planning software helps students to market their need for work, schedule tasks and communicate with clients or with other team members.

By being their own boss students learn:

  • time management – including juggling peak demands times at school and peak times with other gigs.
  • how to cost jobs
  • resource management – scheduling time for tasks
  • quality control

By working as a decentralized team students learn:

  • communication and trust
  • quality control
  • manage fair money sharing

TIPS

Set up your LinkedIn profile:

  • Capture your skills
  • Ask friends to endorse you
  • Build your network

3. Motivation to Work

WHY STUDENTS ARE WINNING

Students can tap into massive opportunities to support causes while they are at school.

These opportunities frequently hit a chord with students who go on to save orangutans, coach kids with disabilities, become environmentalists.

Believing in what they are doing is a greater motivator for young people than money. They don’t want to be ripped off, but they have a sense of urgency and want to be creating the world as a better place.

TIPS

  • Try for lots of experiences while you are at school.
  • Search Google for volunteer opportunities that you might like.
  • Get on a mission to find what you like.
  • Don’t expect your career to come to you in a blinding flash. It will grow on you.

4. Lifelong Learning

WHY STUDENTS ARE WINNING

School students KNOW about lifelong learning. An accelerating rate of change is one of the few constants in their lives. They expect to learn new ways of doing things all of the time.

TIPS

  • Try MOOCS and other online learning platforms.
  • Follow your work interests online.

5. Technology Augmenting Jobs

WHY STUDENTS ARE WINNING

Students already know that technology can make their lives easier. They know how to use their phones to communicate, research, record and collate and hack information to create new solutions.

Expanding their skills to find new ways to use technology will be natural to them.

TIPS

  • Research where IT is being applied to different jobs you are interested in.

In Focus Careers Newsletter 

My passion is making transition from school easier. Each month I write an insanely great newsletter that makes sure you know about opportunities as they emerge.

A life well lived after school

 

The National Youth Commission  is aiming to make leaving school LESS like jumping off a cliff  

Jump off a cliffSEE: Survival Tips for School Leavers

It held its West Australian hearings last week and a number of In Focus Careers subscribers gave presentations.

I sang my song about schools needing to adopt a collaboration framework that smooths transition out of school.  

I was on after Ross Wortham from the Youth Affairs Council who was passionate, articulare and smart as.

Ross Wortham

He spends his days advocating for the removal of barriers that stop youth having a life well lived.

If you are leaving school, it may be worth checking out the YACWA services HERE.

If you provide services to kids transitioning from school and you are NOT collaborating with YACWA it may be worth checking out how you can work together. 1+1=3

5 Survival Tips for School Leavers

When you leave school you become the novice. These tips will help you to be safe and find your way into your brave new world.

1. Money

RobberScammers and rip off merchants can spot you coming. They don’t come with a crowbar and mask. They are more likely to smile and try to become your friend.

These three sites help you to make sure you are not being ripped off.

MONEYSMART

This is a government site. It is NOT trying to sell you anything. It has a section about Studying that includes where to get financial help and how to plan a budget.  It also provides advice on Moving Out of Home. 

FAIR WORK OMBUDSMAN

Fair Work OmbudsmanWage theft has become too common, particularly in the hospitality industry where many school leavers find part time and casual work. The Fair Work Ombudsman is another government service set up to help you to protect yourself.

TENANCY ADVICE

The Youth Central site provides information on how to prepare and what to look out for when you are leaving home.

Before you sign a lease you can check what you are signing up for HERE.

2. Apply 

You have to do SOMETHING when you leave school. Go to one of the Jobs and Skills Centres to get advice and support to find your best career path.

UNIVERSITY

Even if you plan to take a Gap Year put in a TISC application for the university and course of your choice and defer once you get an offer. All states and territories have uni application systems. In Western Australia we have TISC.

TISCTISC Undergraduate

TISC applications for university in 2020 are open. Applications close on 30 September, but you can still apply after that by paying a late fee.

Notre Dame University in Fremantle has its own application process and you need to apply to the university directly.

TAFE

There are lots of vocational education providers, not just TAFE, and there are a lot of job opportunities for graduates with industry focused skills. The long term earnings of Certificate IV and Diploma graduates is equal to those of people who have degrees. If you do a course where there is high demand for workers, the course fees will be much lower than if you do a course like art. Check out the Priority Courses  at the bottom of this link to see what courses have lower fees.

Find more information about TAFE courses HERE.

3. Don’t Try to be Cool

You might try to hide not knowing what to do now, but if you don’t ask for help you will feel worse next year when you still don’t know. Amazed

  • If you are going to uni go to the orientation week. There will be students there who are looking for new students to help so that they can get leadership skills. Get one of them as a mentor.
  • If you are going to TAFE your chosen industry might have a mentor program. Check on Google to see who is around to help. People love to have their expertise recognised so don’t worry about asking for help.
  • Check your local council to see if there are youth support groups in your area.
  • See if you can volunteer or join a club. You need to meet people to find your way in your new world.

4. Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Apprenticeships are traditional trades like plumbing. Traineeships are newer and there is more variety in them. They can be in anything… like farming, mining, IT.

LogoIf you don’t feel confident going for an apprenticeship or traineeship by yourself, go to a Jobs and Skills Centre. They will give you help to find which industry you want to work in, they will help you with your resume and job interview skills. They also have a jobs board where they will point out jobs that you can apply for.

Ask about Group Training Organisations at the Jobs and Skills Centre.

5. Scholarships and Grants

Finding a scholarship can take up less time than working in a coffee shop or pub and there may be less competition. Lots of scholarships have NO APPLICANTS!!

There are scholarships for students at TAFE and university. They mainly fall into two groups:

  1. Academic scholarships for bright students. Your special skill could be in jewellery design or leadership or farming.
  2. Equity scholarships if you can prove you are disadvantaged. These are pretty broad and there are lots of choices. You are considered disadvantaged for example, if you need to relocate from the country to go to university or TAFE and you can probably find a scholarship or grant.
  • In addition there is financial support for those in building trades.
  • If you can show you are a woman in a non traditional trade or occupation including IT, you can probably find a scholarship or grant.
  • If you are a migrant or Aboriginal you will probably find a scholarship.

Look for scholarships and grants on Google.

This is just a starting point. There is lots of help available to you when you leave school, you just need to discover it.

Jan Owen is the Rock Star of Careers

People Power. Future of Degrees. Flexibility .

Jan Owen blasts out a tune that is urgent and passionate and inspirational. 

Jan Owen with Keren Capel

She heads up the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) which she has spent the past 8 years driving to the forefront to influence government policy, drive world class careers research and become a conduit for 21st century success strategies.

I heard Jan speak at SpaceCubed on Tuesday night.

The main messages that I took away were:

1. People Power

Young people want ethical work where they are making a difference. Saving the planet is their number one concern and they are becoming more focused in doing work that will make the world a better place.

To emphasize her point Jan had with her two young West Australian social entrepreneurs who are making a difference:

Nat Foo

Nat Foo from threeonesix  who identified a link between poverty and exploitation of tea farmers and now manages an ethical tea retail business… a giant leap for an occupational therapist.threeonesix tea

 

Darren Looman

Darren is developing Greenbatch which is partnering with schools to collect plastic waste and turn it into filament for 3D printing. Find out how you can get involved HERE.

Greenbatch with bottles

Tips:

  • Both said that you need to pick a problem – research a solution – get people involved.
  • Start small to learn how to work on a project.
  • Neither could have done it without support from others. Both were, for example,  participants in the Young Social Pioneers Program run by FYA.
  • Resilience comes from knowing its the right thing to do.
  • Don’t do you degree at one university. Do units at universities around the world.
  • Both quickly and consciously used their degrees as a springboard to challenging lived experiences and to formal study which overcame barriers to them undertaking their projects.

2. The Future of Degrees

  • Degrees have a two-year shelf life. You can no longer get a degree and know that you have the in depth knowledge you need to succeed for a lifetime.
  • Employers are recruiting workers who have a lifelong learning mindset, then investing in them through ongoing training.

3. Flexibility is Key

While people still choose to gather in workplaces to engage in joined up problem solving, the nature of the workplace is changing.

  • Health professionals call in a range of experts to work together to develop a collaborative solution to a problem. This model is being adopted across all industries.
  • Lindfield Leaning Village and The New Work Mindset in Action are examples of collaborative problem solving ecosystems.
  • Building the personal capacity, physical infrastructure and communication networks to operate in an ecosystem of agile experts, is the key to successful 21st century problem solving.
  • Bosses now manage staff who are also working on their own gigs. It used to be that workers went home to family responsibilities. Now they go home to Uber driving, AirBnB businesses and AirTasker jobs.
  • The next FYA research report is being done on the Flexible Economy.

Pre-apprenticeships


Leave a comment

Entry to pre-apprenticeship at 15

If you look up pre apprenticeships you will find a truckload being advertised for Semester 2.

All of the TAFE colleges and lots of other colleges seem to be advertising them so the level of competition for each place may be down.

Most of the pre-apprenticeship programs offered are Certificate II’s.

Students can meet entry with OLNA, NAPLAN, or by completing a Certificate I or II program at school.  They can also complete a Certificate I or II in General Education or a similar bridging program at a number of TAFE campuses.

TAFE colleges generally require that students are at least 15 years old. It is an adult learning environment and they will be mixing with adults.

(Thanks for South Metro TAFE for providing this information.)

The enrolment process usually involves:

  • Finding some courses online.
  • Apply by providing a resume with school results and references.
  • Go to an interview where you do your best to impress. See the Skillsroad video and the Youth Central site for tips.

If you get a place you need to work like crazy to impress through any contact with either lecturers or potential employers. There aren’t many apprenticeships going so you need to make a good impression while you have the chance. pre apprenticeship

Get Out of School Early Guide

Leaving school early IS AN OPTION. It does NOT mean you will never get a job, or that you will live on the streets for the rest of your life.

School isn’t for everyone. It makes some people’s lives a total misery.

hATE SCHOOL

In Western Australia the government requires students to get special permission to leave school early by applying for a Notice of Arrangement. You can find details of that HERE.

Don’t Jump Too Soon

Once you have made up your mind to leave it is difficult to change your mind. As soon as you start thinking of leaving talk to a career advisor. There may be alternatives that they can offer through the school or they may be able to organise a smooth transition from school for you. Jump off a cliff

Once you leave school people who can help you get limited funding so their capacity to help is limited.  Stick with your school and get as much FREE help as possible before you leave.

Getting help with your resume is a good start.

Decide What You Are Going to Do When You Leave

If you haven’t got a job lined up or a course to go into you may need help to get that sorted.

Many schools have the Career Voyage program that will help you to nail down a career direction for the near future. If you don’t have access to Career Voyage at school you can do the quiz at one of the Careers Centres in Perth or regional centres or contact them online.

I have done this Coggle brainstorm of a bunch of places you can check out to narrow down what you like.

Coggle - Hear Your Dream

Email me Bev.J@infocus-careers.com.au if you would like access to the Coggle map so that you can just click on the links.

Study Year 12 at an Alternative College

Look at the available options for completing Year 12 in another setting like Cyril Jackson, Canning, North Lake and Seven Oaks Colleges. There are adult students at these colleges and you may find that suits your style.

You can also study your WACE through the School of Isolated and Distance Education. 

You can get free information and advice from each of these schools.

Jobs and Skills Centres

You can get free career advice at the new Jobs and Skills Centres which have been set up in TAFE colleges.

Study the Certificate of General Education for Adults

The Certificate of General Education for Adults is a good non-WACE starting point for people who don’t want to finish school.

There are three levels, certificates I – III. Choose the one that suits your needs.

This certificate often has literacy and numeracy support which can kick start your study in another area. Different colleges will allow you to explore different subject opportunities as part of your study.

TAFE colleges give you access to ongoing support from careers advisors.

Study something else at TAFE

You can build your employability skills and explore career options through Foundation Skills Course. Check out the list of Foundation Skills courses HERE. 

Equity Course

There are equity courses that support people with disability and people seeking courses that are aligned with their culture; for example, a qualification specialising in Indigenous Australian tourism. Check the list of courses HERE and ask about opportunities at one of the Jobs and Skills Centres – scroll down this page to find the one nearest to you.

Apprenticeships and Traineeships

If you can find someone who is willing to take you on as an apprentice or trainee, you are on a great path.

You can find apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities through Seek and Indeed. Getting an apprenticeship or traineeship is just like looking for any other job. You need to find the opportunity first, then convince the employer that you would be a great employee. You will need a good resume as a starting point.

Youth Central gives good advice to school leavers on how to write a resume.

When you do an apprenticeship or traineeship qualification you need to sign up so that your training is recognized. You sign up at an Australian Apprentice Support provider. You can find one HERE.

The help that they give will not be as good as the help you can get at school so it is best to try to find an apprenticeship and to contact a provider through your careers advisor.

Government Support

You may be eligible for Youth Allowance. This is hard to get but it is worth checking to see if you qualify HERE.

If you qualify for income support you can also get help from JobActive.  You find an Employment Service Provider near you and they will do what they can to help you to find a job.

Employment Service Providers are not well funded and their capacity to give you help is limited. You will probably get more help from school.

Online Course Information

The My Skills website is a directory of vocational education and training (VET) organisations and courses.

Job Jumpstart has an I’m At School section to help students prepare to leave school.

Going to Uni without an ATAR

If you want to leave school and still want to go to uni you can find Alternative Pathways to Uni HERE. 

Get a Safety Plan

Leaving school early IS AN OPTION. Leaving school is however risky, and there is a chance you could fall into a hole without a safety net.

The suggestions to help you to leave school early are easier to do with the help of a careers advisor.

If you can’t get help at school, go to one of the alternative schools or TAFE colleges or even a uni, to get free advice or pay a professional career advisor to help to set you onto the right path.  That help could put you onto the perfect path to your school free future.

I loved this month’s newsletter! There were so many useful links that I’m going to use, like the Logistics Training Council publications and the Future skills Framework infographic on our demographic. So much handy information – I even signed up for the Public Sector Commissions job search so that I can pass opportunities for traineeships onto students.

Year 10 Subject Selections for Year 11

Parents and students get REALLY STRESSED about subject selections for Year 11.Cat

Time to RELAX.

Help is at hand.

Before you start, know that only one in four university students get a place through the ATAR pathway.

A report from the Mitchell Institute identified that 26% of university students got their place via an ATAR pathway. Mitchell Report

STEP 1 Get SCASA

The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCASA) is THE mob that makes up the rules about WACE.  The first place to find information about Year 11 and 12 is in the official Year 10 Information Handbook which SCASA puts out.

Handbook 2019

If you can’t find the information you need or if you are unclear on anything contact them at info@scsa.wa.edu.au.

STEP 2 Hear Your Dream

You need to have some idea about what career direction you would like to take.

Career VoyageMany schools have the Career Voyage program that will help you to nail down a career direction for the near future. If you don’t have access to Career Voyage at school you can do the quiz at a Jobs and Skills Centre.

I have done this Coggle brain storm of a bunch of places you can check out to narrow down what you like.

Coggle - Hear Your Dream

Email me Bev.J@infocus-careers.com.au if you would like access to the Coggle map so that you can just click on the links.

STEP 3 Do You Want to do ATAR??Lockers

For years ATAR results were the short cut that universities used to choose their students. Things are changing. Competition between universities has heated up and they are looking at many alternative pathways that:

  • enable more students to go to university
  • ensure students don’t fail when they get there.

Universities are looking for alternative pathways more than schools and parents.

READ ABOUT THE ALTERNATIVE PATHWAYS IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA HERE.

TAFE has always been flexible with its pathways to learning than universities and there is a huge range of possible pathways offered.

Job Prospects for Young Job Seekers

Last year the Career Development Association put on a webinar delivered by Ivan Neville, from the Commonwealth Department of Employment. He said….you really need to get a year 12 qualification, or equivalent, to get a job…..

Statistics 1

But there isn’t much difference in employment outcomes between a degree (3.6%) and a Cert III (4.1%).

The opening of university entry to a wider audience had resulted in a shift towards degrees and away from vocational education since 2008.

Statistics 3

There are now stronger job outcomes for apprentices and trainees than people with degrees.

statistics 2

Statistics 4

Step 4 Check Course PRE-REQUISITES

There are lots of courses that have RECOMMENDED subjects, but not so many have definite PRE-REQUISITES that MUST be done as a WACE subject in order to get into a course. University 2022

There are lots of pathways into further study and your WACE pathway is just one of them.

The most direct pathway is however, to take subjects that the universities are looking for. So, once you have narrowed down a career direction to take, check out the TISC University Admissions Handbook. It identifies what WACE subjects you should take to keep your options open.

OLNA

The Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (OLNA) is the minimum WACE requirement reading, writing and numeracy. It is usually done in 10 but there are more opportunities to sit the Assessment in Year 11 and 12 and even AFTER Year 12.

Prospective TAFE students who do not meet these standards can:

  1. sit a TAFE Admissions literacy and/or numeracy test administered by Training Sector Services;
  2. be referred to a TAFE college for a Learning Area Assessment; or
  3. enrol in a course that does not have literacy or numeracy requirements, including foundation skills, equity courses and Certificate I

 

Step 5 Contact Your Career Advisor

Tap into the knowledge and experience of your career advisor.

If you don’t have access to a specialist career advisor at your school, go to a TAFE college Jobs and Skills Centre or private careers consultant to be sure your next step is the right one.
