The workshop is targeted towards High Schools students who are exploring their career options and interests. The workshop includes:
- A psychometric assessment that looks at a child’s problem-solving ability and numerical ability.
- A questionnaire that looks at a child’s vocational interests (career type), tasks they enjoy doing and their self-perceived abilities. We don’t want a child to say that they would like to be a teacher but don’t enjoy report writing. Based on these results, several career types will be identified.
- Once we identify a few choices, Kara works with them individually (in person (depending on the area) or via Zoom) to help them explore these options. This includes:
ü Introduction to career targets,
ü Overview of training pathways and educational choices
ü Overview of UAC, more than an ATAR, subject choices or alignment to career pathways
ü Overview of ‘What is a career’?
ü Goal Setting and Action Achievement
ü VIA Character strengths and how they impact our decisions (complete the VIA survey and unpack the results)
ü Pathways to life after school, Uni, TAFE, College, Employment, Gap year
ü Finding purpose in your school learning
ü When is the right time to leave school for me?
ü LinkedIn Profiles
ü Part-time jobs; motivation and purpose
ü Resume and interview preparation
Brief report will be provided at the end of the workshop.
