School plays a vital role in supporting preparation for post-school training and employment. Research shows that starting careers education early and embedding programs to create on-the-job learning experiences while students are still at school, is key to ensuring all young people have the confidence, skills and knowledge to build a future that includes employment.
School to Work activities need to be carefully tailored and meet the needs of each individual. Ticket to Work has developed guides and resources to support teachers and careers planners to help students develop their goals, aspirations and strengths, and discover the world of work through collaboration and targeted work opportunities that are closely aligned to individual career plans.
Based on the Kohlers Taxonomy of Transition Programming, these resources support the development of strategic activities through close collaboration between students, families and external agencies.
