Career Profiling for High Schools

Career Profiling Brochure for Schools

Our comprehensive Career Profile Reports are available to schools in Australia.  We can service country areas using our online profiling system.  

We provide comprehensive individual career profiles for students from Year 9-12.  Once students have their reports, we can then provide a lunchtime feedback session to parents and students.  We also train school personnel to talk to students about their reports through our 2-day Accreditation Program.

Schools can also choose to have our experienced and well trained interviewers come and give individual counselling sessions to students.

Career Avenues Profile

 


 

Our approach is based on the principals of Positive Psychology.  We believe that successful career planning grows out of a positive outlook on life and events, and from embracing what is good in our lives.

Career Avenues has developed an extensive database of over 1400 occupations over the last 2 decades which are matched against each of the elements in our profiles.  This gives students a comprehensive list of career ideas at the end of their reports which are matched against their profile.

Career Avenues Profile

The Career Avenues Profile is a full colour,16 page booklet which includes a detailed report on each area included in the career assessment.  It also provides lists of compatible careers in each of the student's top 3 interest categories.  These careers are matched with the student's aptitudes, interests and personal style. Students also receive a Career Development Workbook to show them how to research these ideas.

1.  Assessment Session - paper and pencil OR online

Paper and Pencil: In large group tests at school, we take students through our tests and questionnaires in a 4 hour session. Career Avenues staff will conduct this session.  We supply all materials in one large group at school and takes just under 4 hours, including a 20 minute break.

We can use conventional test booklets and hard copy scanned answer sheets, or, if  the school technology is suitable, large groups of students can complete the material online. 

Online: Students can complete individually online.  This makes the service available to any students who wishes to use it.  Schools can also conduct the testing themselves over several school lessons, using the online system.  This allows schools to participate with only small numbers of students.  Students who miss the main test session are also able to complete online.

2.  Areas covered in Report:

  • Aptitude Profile 
    • abstract reasoning

Career Avenues has developed an extensive database of over 1400 occupations over the last 2 decades which are matched against each of the elements in our profiles. 

Within 3 weeks of the testing, the careers adviser normally receives the students' reports.  These are handed back in a feedback session.

3.    Student Feedback 

Reports can be emailed to students or returned during a feedback session, depending on the school preference. Feedback can be in a group evening session which includes parents, group session in school or individual interview format during school time.

Schools can also elect to use Career Avenues counsellors to provide individual interviews. The interviews are normally either 25 or 30 minutes long.  Interested parents may attend these interviews where the 30 minute option is adopted. Details of pricing can be found here.

4.    Career Development Workbooks

With the Comprehensive Career Profile Report, students are also provided with a Career Development Workbook to guide them through the use of their profile. These exercises help students identify and evaluate career options they wish to research using the information in their profile.  Workbooks can be used in class or as an individual aid in further career exploration.

This research is supported by our online tools and career glossary.

Our program can be modified and adapted to meet the specific requirements of each client school.

Here are some recent comments from students and parents about our program:

I found this very helpful in two respects: firstly that it helped me in thinking about what comes after undergraduate studies as there is very little information about this in circulation.   It was also helpful in allowing me to rule out careers I thought I would like to do but wouldn’t be suited to me.

I really enjoyed my career profiling session.   I learnt a great deal and I feel inspired to really dive further into more research for my future.

I believe that the Career Avenues profiling session has been extremely helpful in assisting my decision of a career path.  I would recommend it to other students.  Thank you!

It was very good at giving you a clear idea of what careers suit your personality.  I would recommend it to anyone!

It was so good that my Mum is considering getting my sister to complete this profiling assessment.  Lots of useful information.

Our recent survey results from our school clients and parents were overwhelmingly positive about the value of our career profiling process.

We aim to inspire students to imagine amazing futures for themselves and to aim high.  We never tell students what they "should" do.  Instead we try to open their horizons and encourage them to get excited about their future.
