Career Stories are authentic inspirational videos recorded ‘on the job’ by a cross-section of Australian workers.
Career Stories showcase a diverse range of jobs, industries, career pathways, skill sets and work-related advice. The videos are diverse in nature and each video provides links to curricula and the world of work.
Career Stories are used in classrooms across Australia, bringing real world relevance to curriculum topics, and inspiring and motivating young people to set goals and raise aspirations.
Career Stories fall into two categories – Tales and Topics:
- TALES are narratives which detail an individual’s job, career journey or education pathway.
- TOPICS are focused on career advice and work readiness tips, or show how a particular Learning Area is utilised in the workplace.
