Text Australian blueprint for careers development: online resource

TLF ID M009541

The Australian Blueprint for Career Development includes resources to help career advisers create and review career development services for young people and adults. The blueprint was compiled by the Australian, state and territory governments to be the unifying career development framework for Australia. It is intended to be used to design, implement and evaluate career development interventions for young people and adults. The resource sets out the blueprint's framework of 11 career-management competencies, success stories and supporting resources that can be downloaded to help develop career programs and activities.

Educational details

Educational value
  • The Australian blueprint for careers development is a seminal resource for Australian schools, providing a strong basis for schools to develop high-quality career education programs. Its 11 career-management competencies are grouped into three areas: personal management, learning and work exploration, and career building. There are performance indicators for each competency across four developmental phases.
  • The toolkit's worksheets and activities have been designed to develop the career-management competencies of learners and are generally useful. They were gathered during the trial period of the blueprint and it is intended that teachers will adapt them to meet the needs of their particular learners.
