CICA Professional Standards for Australian Career Development Practitioners include Labor Market Information, and the expectation that career practitioners will “understand educational and training opportunities and resources and transition pathways as appropriate to work setting”. This breakfast will provide practitioners working with High School and College students with an opportunity to learn about entry pathways for the University of Tasmania, including the Schools Recommendation Program.
The University of Tasmania Schools Recommendation program allows Australian year 12 students to apply for up to five courses at the end of May. First round offers will be made in July, taking the pressure off students during year 12. Rather than an ATAR, applications are based on school recommendations and year 11 results. Further offers will be made through until Dec 2021.
