22.06.2020 Parents, how can you help you children get a career?
Season 1, Ep. 11
Can you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Or perhaps what your first job was and how it’s changed over the last 15-20 years? It’s almost impossible to remember a day in the office not relying on email and websites. Even jobs like transport and manufacturing have already been impacted by the growth in technology – and that trend is going to continue.So, what does that mean for you? Perhaps not too much, as long as your job doesn’t change too dramatically over the next few years. But what about your kids? If technology continues to change and adapt, then so must the educational pathways we offer young people to create opportunities and improve their working lives today and into the future.Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a crucial pathway to provide this, and it’s of vital importance that we support school-aged young people and school leavers so that they access clear information about VET and what a VET-based career can offer. As parents, you are in a fantastic position to assist your children to consider this pathway.In this episode, we are going to bust some common misconceptions around the VET pathway, and support parents to help their kids get a leg up in their career.AATIS is funded by the Australian Federal Government.Resources:AAPathways websiteMyGain websiteFacebookTwitterInstagramLinkedIn
