About the program

For year 10 students

The Career Awareness Program (CAP) is designed to enhance the year 10 SACE Personal Learning Plan (PLP) subject. The CAP 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. Prior to the student program, teachers will be provided with the opportunity to participate in Teacher Professional Learning to explore MCM profile links to the SACE curriculum.

The Career Awareness Program is supported by University student mentors where possible.
