About the program

For year 10 students

The Careers Compass 10 (CC10) is designed to enhance the year 10 SACE Personal Learning Plan (PLP) subject. CC10 engages with secondary school students to raise awareness and aspirations for higher education.

This program utilises the MyCareerMatch (MCM) profile which allows students to determine their skills, abilities, strengths, and personality style. The profile can assist students to identify future careers, study pathways and can also be linked to some PLP curriculum tasks.

This program is delivered at secondary school sites by negotiation.
Example: Same day (8.30 – 3.30 pm) for 3-4 consecutive weeks.

The Careers Compass 10 program is supported by University student mentors where possible.
Example: 1 University mentor equates to 6.5 hours of free of charge curriculum support per day, if your school site has negotiated the 4 weeks block the school would receive 26 hours of free of charge curriculum support per University mentor.

Prior to the student program, teachers will be provided with the opportunity to participate in Teacher Professional Learning to explore MCM profile and resources that link to the SACE curriculum.
