Career education involves learning to manage and take responsibility for personal career development. The Career and Enterprise General course involves recognising one’s individual skills and talents, and using this understanding to assist in gaining and keeping employment. The course develops a range of work skills and an understanding of the nature of work.

Key components of the course include:

  • the development of an understanding of different personality types and their link to career choices;
  • entrepreneurial behaviours;
  • learning to learn; and
  • the exploration of social, cultural and environmental issues that affect work, workplaces and careers.

Workplaces have different structures which impact on their practices and processes and how they operate. Each workplace is unique and its organisation governs workplace settings and patterns of work.

The Career and Enterprise General course has been constructed using, and is strongly aligned to, the knowledge, skills and understandings from the Core Skills for Work Development Framework (2013) and the Australian Blueprint for Career Development (the Blueprint).

At Ashdale SC, General students have the opportunity to complete four blocks of work experience.  During Career and Enterprise classes, our teachers and Workplace Learning Coordinators work with students to identify opportunities in a range of industry areas and support students to communicate and use initiative sourcing and securing an appropriate placement.
