What's next?
Are you wondering what to do after school?

This 1.5 day workshop is designed for year 11 and 12 students who are looking for creative tools and activities to help with the 'what next' decision.

What you choose to do with the third of your life that you will spend working is one of the greatest creative decisions you will make. It is also a decision that many of us go into blindly, without the compass of self-knowledge or the tools to help us navigate the multitude of choices. Run by career coach Jess Pollard this workshop is a day full of creative activities and discussion bringing together design theory, vocational psychology and labour market research to help you to develop a path forward and the courage to move to action. On completing this workshop you will come away with your own Career Workbook in which you will have identified and started to develop your own:
* Strengths
* Values
* Skill sets
* Career mindsets
* Career beliefs
* Decision making strategies
* Action plan for ‘what next’


A4 notebook, pens, pencils, scissors, glue, ruler, your favourite magazine, a smart device (larger than phone recommended but not compulsory).

Session Hours:
Week 1 - 9.00am - 2.00pm
Week 2 - 9.00am - 11.00am
