Career Education through the General Capabilities

back to Programs

This session is designed to provide an online opportunity for K-6 teachers and school leaders to support and build on career education in your school. Through the General Capabilities students develop the skills, understandings, disposition and behaviours to become successful learners who are confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. Personal and Social Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical Understanding, Intercultural Understanding and Information and Communication Technology Capability will be explored within the context of career education.

Participants will consider what is currently happening in their school context to cover the General Capabilities, and will collaborate with others around school context connections and programs, building a network to embed the General Capabilities into teaching and learning. A plan of action moving forward will be created, for individual school contexts, to consider how the General Capabilities will be addressed through the teaching and learning program.

Through participation in the online session, teachers and school leaders of Career Education will:

  • have an understanding of how your school currently addresses the General Capabilities
  • make connections with similar schools based on your school contexts and programs
  • explore resources to support General Capabilities in your school
  • design a plan of action moving forward that will consider how the General Capabilities will be addressed through the learning areas.
