National Careers Week
National Careers Week aims to celebrate careers, career development and career development practitioners and to promote the economic, social and personal benefits of career development.
Career development is a process of managing learning, work and leisure to progress through life. It includes gaining and using the skills and knowledge needed to plan and make informed decisions about education, training, and work. Everyday decisions and priorities affect career development. Ultimately, career development is about much more than jobs – it is about how to live your life.

Career development is happening in childhood, whether we realise it or not and our children can only imagine what they see and hear.
Children’s decision-making is highly influenced by their home environment from a young age.
Little Ripples provides parents with a series of fun activities and games they can use at home with their children.

Australian Blueprint for Career Development
The Australian Blueprint for Career Development (the Blueprint) is a framework that can be used to design, implement, and evaluate intentional career development learning for people of all ages and stages, beginning in early childhood.
At its core, the Blueprint identifies the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that an individual needs to make sound choices and effectively manage their own career. In the Blueprint, these are referred to as career management competencies.
The Blueprint has a solid foundation in career development theory that underpins the Blueprint’s emphasis on individuals developing a good self-understanding to understand their preferences better and make sound decisions.
The Blueprint will be used primarily by professional career development practitioners with postgraduate qualifications in career development and specialists in their field.

The future workplace will bring new experiences and expectations.
Our young people today will work in jobs that are yet to be created, use technology that has not yet been invented and face social, economic and environmental challenges that are yet to be anticipated.
To be successful in the future world of work,young people will need skills and capabilities to navigate this new world.
They will require a portfolio of skills and capabilities to make well informed career decisions throughout life.
High quality career education builds resilient individuals who can adapt to the changing nature of work, managing multiple careers throughout their lifetime, adapting to their circumstances and needs.
