All Year 9 students in Victorian Government Schools will be offered the Morrisby online career diagnostic assessment from Term 1 2019
The Department has engaged the Career Education Association of Victoria, which will be working with Career Analysts Pty Ltd, to deliver the professional career planning service for all Year 9 students in Victorian government schools.
Starting in Term 1 2019, all Year 9 students in Victorian Government Schools will be offered the Morrisby online career diagnostic assessment. This will take under two hours, and should be conducted in school time – typically in class groups or larger. Students with additional needs will be considered on an individual basis.
Following the assessment, both students and their parents will be encouraged to consider the information and answer some questions in preparation for a 1:1 career counselling session. This will be conducted by a qualified, external career practitioner, and will be carried out during school hours and on school premises. The discussions will include short-term specific subject choices as well as training, higher education and employment pathways and options.
Written interview notes summarising the counselling session and any action points will be provided to the school. The outcome of this process will be to improve the quality and understanding of pathways for Year 9 students.
