Empower your teaching with the Ponder Program

Effortlessly deliver career education to students' aged 12-18 with content that's aligned to the world's best-practice frameworks

Be an innovative career leader at school

As a school careers practitioner, pathways coordinator or guidance counsellor, you’re shaping the future every day. But encouraging every young dream (and preparing the teaching content to inspire them) is a lot to achieve on your own. 

That’s where the Ponder Program can help – by providing a year-long career education framework for your entire senior school that students love and teachers enjoy using.

It’s an easy way for you to bring innovation (and an inspirational futures program) to your school, wherever you may be based. 

Right lessons, Right Students, Right Time

Introducing the Career Development Framework

Career leaders have been asking for a ‘scope & sequence’ to know they’re teaching the right things AND to save preparation time. 

So we created the Career Development Framework (CDF) – a complete teaching structure for senior school career studies, developed in consultation with both public and private school educators. 

It provides career leaders with:

40 Unit Structure

A whole year's worth of flexible lesson content, handouts, questions, activities, videos and editable Student Workbooks (PDF)

For each Year Level

Early secondary students are very different to upper senior students. So our content is adjusted for each year level (ensuring you're teaching the right things, at the right time)

With Best Practice in mind

The CDF is modelled on the world's best-practice career education frameworks, ensuring you and your team are delivering educational excellence

Save time with a teaching framework provided for each school term/period

Empower educators on your team to deliver short Ponder lessons in Homeroom/Form Class, PDHPE, Pastoral Care, Wellbeing, or Mentoring sessions

Engage students with contemporary videos and workbook activities

Start positive student conversations
