Research to action guides: school to employment transitions

Bridging the gap between what we know and what we do. Our objective is to build a comprehensive online collection of disability research and translational resources for the Australian context. Our Research to Action Guides are based on the best available local and international evidence and put together by subject matter experts to support research end users to engage with the evidence. We gather and analyse evidence about what works, and package that information into efficient and practical resources.

About this Guide

This Research to Action Guide presents the important things to know for young people looking to make the transition from school to employment in Australia. This Guide includes an evidence based way for students to think about what is right for them, and the “golden rules” for transitioning from school to employment. It is important that young people are supported to get the most out of this Guide.
