With year 12 results now rolling out across the country, students and their parents may be asking what next?
For students that received an unexpected result or those without a chosen career pathway, CDAA spokesperson Rebecca Fraser is urging them to start considering their potential options.
“There will be many students receiving their results this week needing to re-evaluate their options,” Ms Fraser said.
“Qualified career practitioners are able to provide these students with advice based on the future world of work, an intricate understanding of the labour market and a holistic perspective of the education sector.
“They can also provide individualistic advice based on assessment tools to determine skills and interest to identify future career options.”
Receiving this advice is more important than ever, with around half of current occupations expected to be redundant by 2025.
“This is a major issue facing Australia and we need to ensure students are studying courses that are going to prepare them for the future world of work.”
Ms Fraser encourages these students to seek this career advice from a qualified career development practitioner.
