Connecting Learning to Work

Research indicates that teachers are a key influence on students’ career decision making and are often asked for advice and information by their students. Moreover, the research suggests students' learning is enhanced by increasing teachers' knowledge and understanding of the career pathways that align with their respective subject areas.

The Australian Centre for Career Education (ACCE) has been contracted by the Department of Education and Training to manage and support the member teacher associations of the Council of Professional Teaching Associations of Victoria (CPTAV) to create resources that support teachers and careers practitioners to connect learning in the classroom to potential careers. This will supplement and support the career education programs in schools to provide our students with the skills and capabilities to navigate multiple careers, manage complex and challenging transitions and meet the demands of the rapidly changing world of work.
