Career and Transition Teams

The Career and Transition Team uses a collaborative effort to ensure the planned provision of career and transition support for young people at school. The Team operates in a learning community context that extends beyond the school.

The Career and Transition Team acknowledges that effective and on-going student career development really needs a whole school approach. The team will determine relevant and appropriate career education programs and activities which best meet the needs of students.

The Career and Transition Team comprises team members who together have the skills, training and commitment to provide career and transition guidance and support to students.

Members of the team are likely to include:

The size and capacity of the team will vary from school to school, yet the concept of building such a team is a key to integrating
Career and Transition Support into the core business of the school.

Career and Transition Teams school case studies provide examples of schools in various stages of implementing Career
& Transition Teams.
