Which school subjects should you choose?

These flyers are suitable for both school-based apprenticeships or post-school apprenticeships. Each flyer sets out a possible career path for the student and then suggests the elective subjects that will make that career path possible. The subject lists cover choices in years 9 & 10 and 11 & 12. The flyers are designed to make sourcing information easy for careers advisers too. Each flyer features a strong, identifiable image that indicates each type of apprenticeship. Laid out side by side, comparisons between subject choices are simple. You will also find more information about careers under the Traineeships tab (scroll up).



ICT needs your students

There has been a 12% increase in demand for digital skills across the economy since 2016. A 47% growth is projected for the digital expert workforce by 2026. That will create a 370,000 digital worker shortfall projected for Australia by 2026. There are plenty of VET and tertiary training courses available. Your students’ career can start at school with a wise choice of school subjects and/or a school-based traineeship — scroll up now. If you attended the Careers Advisers conference at Darling Harbour on 26 October, you'll find the ICT presentation here.
