My Career Insights is a program for all Year 9 students (or equivalent in specialist settings) in Victorian Government secondary schools. The Department of Education and Training (DET) has engaged the Career Education Association of Victoria (CEAV), which is working with Career Analysts Pty Ltd, to deliver My Career Insights. The program is part of a suite of career education reforms implemented by the DET in 2019.
Students will be given the opportunity to complete a series of questionnaires and quizzes accessed through the Morrisby website. They will then discuss their results with a Morrisby-trained Careers Consultant in a 30 minute interview.
My Career Insights will help students discover, develop and drive their career planning. It is a unique opportunity for students to learn more about their strengths and abilities, while exploring potential career options – giving them the confidence to start taking control of their future.
Morrisby has been specifically designed and developed for volume career assessment of school-aged students. It is interactive with customisation options. Once students have a login, all assessments can be taken again without further cost as students mature, and interests change.

This discussion may be face-to-face at school or through a video conference.
In light of the move to remote and flexible learning at the start of Term 2, a Morrisby@Home profiling kit has been developed for students so they can self-direct their profiling session from home. We are also exploring options for students to discuss their results using a video conferencing platform. Further information can be found through the Morrisby@Home page.
