The Year 9 Career Taster Program (CTP) will allow students to explore career and study pathways and make connections between education and post-school opportunities. Practical activities will provide opportunities to learn about different industries, current and emerging occupations and the skills required, meaning students can make more informed decisions when selecting subjects in Years 10, 11 and 12.
The program is being developed by the Department of Training and Workforce Development WA (DTWD) in collaboration with the WA Department of Education, Catholic Education WA, the Association of Independent Schools WA, and WA TAFE colleges. Program design is being facilitated through consultation across Perth and regional WA with industry and employers, schools, students, vocational training providers, and community groups.
Anyone wishing to offer ideas, provide feedback, or get involved and support the program should contact the CTP project manager at DTWD on 6551 5514 or Career.TasterProgram@dtwd.wa.gov.au
