More information for parents

As parents you want the best for your family and when it comes to helping your child decide what to do after Year 12, you are going to need access to useful information - and lots of it.

Our experience tells us that everything you need to know about what's out there is available online. You just need to know how to find it.

By now, you will have become familiar with the Aboriginal Education Worker or Careers Counsellor at your child's school. If not, now is a good time to meet them. It's never too late or too early!

By showing your interest and working together with these professionals and your child, you can start to map out their strengths and weaknesses; skills and abilities; and interests in order to help your son or daughter decide on a pathway to University.

As you get to the point of looking at what is available at University, TAFE and through other forms of study, you will need a systematic way of accessing all the information available to you in order to keep your child interested and as stress free as possible in their final years of high school. Lets face it, getting through years 11 and 12, TAFE or studies at an Adult Campus is daunting enough without having to make important career decisions at the same time! 

So here are some tips, resources and 'nuts and bolts' information to get you started.
