Inclusive Career Development project aimed to support and build the capacity of schools to implement evidence-based and effective, school to work transition and career development for students with disability.  Part of the project was developing an Inclusive Careers Benchmarking Tool. 

The project is a partnership between the Brotherhood of St Laurence, the Australian Centre for Career Education (ACCE) and the University of Newcastle and supported by Gandel Foundation.

The Inclusive Careers Benchmarking Tool

The Inclusive Careers Benchmarking Tool is to be used by school career/ transition specialists and school leadership teams to assess themselves against international policy and practice in Career and Pathway planning.

The Tool is designed to support schools in building inclusive practices in Career Development when working with students with disability, with the aim of improving their career development journey and transition into post school pathways.
