Preparing for Work

Support your students as they prepare to work

Students need to leave school with the skills and information they require to find and secure work, but this process can be tricky, and they need to know how to find jobs, apply for them, secure (and ace) an interview, then prepare for their first day. 

Here you’ll find some great Australian Curriculum aligned resources to help you prepare your students for work, whether you’re looking for activities to integrate into your career lessons or content to embed in other subjects.
