Inclusive Career Development Resources for Schools

What happens in school is key to the long term economic and social participation of people with disability. Career development can change the life trajectory of all students but especially for young people with disability. This is because students with disability often face a pervasive culture of low expectations resulting in a lack of opportunities that hampers their ability to take the journey from school to meaningful work. Studies have shown that the number one indication of post-school employment is the experience and exploration of the world of work while at school.

Ticket to Work were keen to assist schools to be aware and implement evidence-based policies and practices that improve the life chances of young people with disability. With the support from Gandel Foundation, Ticket to Work partnered with The Australian Centre for Career Education (ACCE) and University of Newcastle and worked with three schools to co-design and test a benchmarking tool. The tool is informed by contemporary research and designed to support mainstream and specialist schools to enhance their career development service and practice to improve life outcomes for Australian students with disability.

Ticket to Work also have other fantastic resources for schools, including:

  • A podcast on the ICD project narrated by past Ticket to Work participant Jack Anderson
  • Inclusive Career Development – Literature Review and evaluation
  • Watch the video on the project, and hear from the schools and the project team

ACCE has also set up a Community of Practice for career practitioners, school personnel and others interested in improving inclusive career practice. For more information go here.
