Research
• Making Career Development Core Business
This Report highlighted quality career development services
were particularly important in Victoria given
• Victoria is moving towards a demand-driven VET and higher
education system
• The post-compulsory qualifications and institutional choices that
young people face are more diverse than in any other state and
territory, and
• The extended young participation guarantee requirements means
that more young people who may previously have left the education
and training systems will need support to pursue their pathways

have encouraged them to stay at school (2008)

equipping young people with the competencies (skills,
knowledge and attitudes) to make the myriad of choices
with which adults are confronted continuously, in all
aspects of their adult lives, lifelong.”
