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.

What is career education and why is important that all young Australians are provided with high quality career education as part of their schooling?
Future Ready: A student-focused National Career Education Strategy has been developed to increase awareness and improve national consistency of career education.
CICA will be conducting a series of face to face events and webinars across Australia from October 2019. More information will be available soon!
These events will highlight the importance of career education in schools, identify why schools should invest in quality career education, highlight good practice examples including partnering with industry as well as identifying and promoting the resources developed under the strategy.
