School Leavers Information KitDear Students,
The School Leavers Information Kit has been developed to help you understand the education, training and career opportunities and pathways available to you in 2021.
Transitioning from school can sometimes be challenging and COVID-19 has presented some additional challenges. The aim of this kit is to help support you in making decisions about your next steps after leaving school and to equip you with resources to be better informed about your education, training and work options.
The National Career Institute’s (NCI) School Leavers Information Kit has been especially developed to help you at this time and includes:
? resources to support you to make decisions about the right career and pathway for you to get there post-school
? information on work and education options such as university, vocational education and training (VET), apprenticeships, volunteering and community service
? tips and resources to help you update your resume and apply for jobs
? resources outlining government funding support and subsidies available to you.
The NCI has also set up the School Leavers Information Service. This is a free support to help navigate the School Leavers Information Kit and the NCI’s Your Career website as well as an opportunity to engage with a personalised career guidance session with a qualified career practitioner for up to 45 minutes. You can contact the service by phone on 1800 CAREER (1800 227 337), by texting ‘SLIS2020’ to 0429 009 435 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
