Raising tertiary awareness and broadening the career aspirations of students

The Careers Outreach Program is integral to Griffith’s commitment to widening tertiary participation in under-represented groups, through effective partnerships with schools and local communities.

Year 8

Talking Careers

This interactive 60-70 minute lesson, developed by our careers experts and delivered by trained Griffith student mentors, introduces Year 8 students to six key principles of career development. Using a combination of workbooks (provided by workshop facilitator), media resources, and group work, students will learn more about themselves and make connections between their learning, accomplishments, and aspirations.

Year 9

True Colours Workshops

Based on Follow your True Colours to the Work you Love (Carolyn Kalil, 2011), this workshop helps students to learn more about themselves and occupations of interest. The workshops provide an opportunity for students to learn about and apply career planning processes to help complete their SET plans in Year 10. Trained Griffith student mentors co-facilitate these 60-minute in-school workshops, bringing their own experiences to share with students.

'Overall, this workshop was a great way for us to start thinking about our futures and what we want to achieve when we leave school...I thought there are so many different options and opportunities that are available for the whole community.' - St Thomas More College Year 9 student

Year 10

Future Careers Workshop

The new Future Careers workshop explores future career markets and outlines the seven new job clusters to help young people navigate the new work order. It has been developed from the Foundation for Young Australian's New Work Order Report 2017, and provides insight into future careers/industries with forecasted growth potential.

As part of our Schools Outreach program, this 70 minute workshop is facilitated by a qualified teacher and career practitioner, along with our University Ambassadors. The program aims to encourage students to set goals and take an active role in their career development.

Griffiti Magazine

Griffiti is an educational magazine featuring stories from inspiring former Uni-Reach students now studying at university.

The magazine also contains important information to help students decide what to do when they finish school.

Griffiti is distributed free each year to all Year 10 students in our partner high schools and students can join our competition and stay up-to-date with us.

A new teacher resource is also available.
