Students are having to prepare themselves for careers that are likely to be more complex and more dynamic than that which we may have experienced.
They can expect throughout their working life, to be repeatedly changing roles, moving between employers, moving in and out of training and constantly gaining knowledge.
A Career is a Journey
A ‘career’ is now more about ‘managing a journey’ than choosing an occupation. Students will need to have an understanding of professional pathways, educational pathways, developing technologies and emerging industries to be informed enough to properly manage their career.
The challenge for young people is having the skills to “manage” their career so that they can constantly adjust to the inevitable change and make good decisions along the way.
