The purpose of this page is to provide a resource for people to expand their knowledge base and have access to reliable and trusted information in order to better assist students and young people with their career choices.
A collaborative partnership has been formed and an action plan has been developed to capture the key priorities associated with the development of a regional specific framework for career development practitioners.  This framework will encourage ongoing networking and skills development to support a consistent approach to career planning and development for youth.
