About Us

Helping to connect your students with careers they love

Quite simply, that’s the only reason we’re here

Let’s work together on your students' next steps

What does an ideal world look like to us?

It’s one where all of your students feel positive about their upcoming transition from secondary school.

Where career management skills are prioritised in the same way that Mathematics, Science, History, or Language competency is.

And your school’s most important measure of success is having ensured that every student feels ready and prepared to leave.

If that’s how you feel too, then we’re glad you’ve found us.

A Social Enterprise with education in mind

“Thank you so much, I am currently looking at all of the online resources and keep thinking – Where has this program been all my life?? This is fantastic!!!” Lilian Joseph, Deputy Principal

We’re doing things differently:

  • We’re school-funded – so we only answer to our schools, making you our greatest champion and biggest supporter
  • We reinvest most of our profits back into product development (which is why you can enjoy an incredible range of quality materials to use)

But most importantly, everything we do is designed or reviewed by a qualified Senior Career Practitioner to ensure it’s both engaging and appropriate in school settings. Because you and your students are what matters most.

Student Focused & Family Friendly

Since we started back in 2006 we’ve always had the philosophy of –

  • Putting students and their wellbeing first
  • Collecting and safely storing only the bare minimum of information required to run our service (and never sharing it with anyone)
  • Focussing on the JEDI values of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, so that every resource is balanced, approachable, and usable by as many students as possible

It means that you can confidently implement Study Work Grow at your school and know you’re doing a good thing for your students and the people who care for them.
