Career and self-discovery

Developing a career or training pathway after school often requires thinking about how these prospects link with personal strengths and interests. Supporting students to discover these strengths and interests will give them a solid foundation for their career journey. These career and self-discovery practices focus on how to use the myWAY Employability platform, explore career interests and strengths, and identify and plan for post-school pathways.
