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:
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
The new Career Clusters Resources are all included

We’ve integrated our unique Career Clusters resources and learnings throughout the new 2023 Ponder Program.
