Navigating Future Pathways Program

The Program is a new strategy and delivery model that will strengthen efforts to increase SACE achievement and create vocational education and training opportunities for young people across the state.

The strategy focuses on developing stronger, more sustained partnerships between schools and businesses to support real-world learning, and expose young people to the range of pathways available to them, including in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)-related areas.

Key elements of the strategy include:

  • closer links with business and industry to ensure course work is directly relevant to the modern workplace, and develops the realworld problems solving skills employers are seeking
  • extra support for schools to increase SACE participation, retention and completion rates and deliver higher ATAR scores through a focus on teaching
  • improved career planning advice for students and their families, including the latest labour market information so they can make well informed decisions
  • closer alignment of Vocational Education and Training programs with skills shortages and emerging industries
  • building effective approaches to career development that improve students' career management skills.
