Keep everyone informed with our suite of Communication Tools
A Lite Membership gives you all of the tools and resources to enhance how you communicate about careers & pathways at school (and save you hours of valuable time each week). Try it with 3 months for free at your school today.
Make careers communication easy with beautiful, done-for-you resources
Career counsellors love sharing careers & pathways info with students, but they often don’t have the time to create them.
That’s why our Lite Membership is so popular – with PDFs, online career education tools, weekly email news, and a customisable Careers Website for your school. You get everything you need to start conversations, support students, and communicate with parents in a way that suits you and your school setting.
Weekly Careers News
Easily engage parents and students each week with shareable careers, pathways, and higher education news
Student Guides & Job Spotlights
Inspire exciting career choices with beautiful PDF and Video materials that make your careers program look fantastic
School Careers Website
Don’t pay separately for a careers website for your school – a Lite Membership includes one for you at no extra cost
Keep everyone updated
On Monday mornings of each school week, we send out a customisable newsletter document in Microsoft Word that you can edit, rebrand, PDF, and send on to students and parents as your own.
- Add your school logo
- Put in any local news/events you wish
- Remove anything you like
- PDF and send it
That can save you 2-5 hours per week of research and collation, and your school will be impressed that you’ve produced a helpful & engaging newsletter every week.
P.S. Who created it can stay as our little secret. You’re most welcome.
Build better pathways
Our helpful Student Guides walk students (and their families) through how to do everything from apply to university to getting work experience to exploring gap years. Updated every year, they’re a fantastic way to support your students.
Just share them with students when they have questions – so your one-to-one meetings with can instead be a valuable conversation rather than web searching.
- Entry to Medicine
- Gap Years
- Apprenticeships & Traineeships
- Applying to University/College
- and many more
You’re welcome to share these with your students and parents as much as you wish.
Inspire fresh career ideas
Each week you’ll also get a Job Spotlight that profiles a different career – from Computational Biologist to Baker to Drone Pilot to Copywriter – there’s over 200 careers to explore.
Every Job Spotlight has a PDF brochure, video, and digital landscape poster, so you’ve got a variety of formats to share inspiration with your students.
Put everything in the one place
Your Pathways Hub is a school-branded Careers Website that stores all the information students and their families need in the one place (so you only need one link).
It gives you a central point to collect everything together, and you can easily refer people to the Hub to find the answers (before they come to you with their questions).
Your Hub is fully customisable. Add your own colours and logo, store important (and regularly requested) documents, leave messages, add your own custom pages, and share a link to your appointment booking platform.
We also update your Hub weekly, so your school community can download all the latest guides and resources without needing to login. And if they do want to sign up for our careers newsletters, they can do that from your Hub as well.
Student and Family Memberships are included for your entire school community
It’s no surprise that parents are the #1 career influence on their children (and that teachers are a close second). That’s why we’ve made it easy for students and their families to access news, guides, job spotlights and more, all from your Pathways Hub.
- Visit your school’s Pathways Hub website
- Enter their details (just the basics like Name, Year Level, and School Email Address)
- And they will get our Weekly News for free
How good is that? But before they can sign up, you’ll need to sign up first. Just click the button below to request access.
We're independant, unbiased, and inclusive
And we’ve always been that way.
Some schools have been Study Work Grow members since the beginning (which was waaaaay back in 2006), and the reason they keep renewing each year is because they know that our information is student-friendly and always safe, unbiased, as we’re funded by schools, not industries or third-parties who want to advertise to students, and we ensure everyone feels welcome and centre inclusion and diversity in all we do.
All our resources are designed and overseen by a qualified senior Career Development Practitioner, and in collaboration with schools and students, so you can trust our resources.
We're here for ALL schools
We’re a small, community-based Social Enterprise from a regional town, and we know that not every school has access to a robust Career Education budget.
That’s why we’ve designed our Lite Membership to be super affordable, and, in fact, we haven’t changed the price since 2009.
We also offer reduced-fee memberships for small schools (generally under 150 students across all years), and for remote schools and schools in disadvantaged areas. If budget is an issue, please let us know and we’ll do whatever we can to help.
Join our 1,000 strong educator community
Educators love how we help them to have thriving career education programs in their schools – and we hope you’ll soon be letting us know how much you love our programs too.
Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs
Yes. We’re a generous bunch at Study Work Grow, so we give you lots of time to explore and see if our service is right for you. At the end of the 3 month trial, we’ll send you an invoice, so if you’re like 90% of educators who want to stay on with us, it’s easy to do so. If not, that’s totally ok – just send our small team a quick email to let us know.
Career Counsellors tell us that they wished career conversations happened just as often as conversations about maths, science, or humanities.
Parents are the same (they’re worried that their teenager might ‘end up on the sofa’, rather than making a successful post-school transition). So our Lite Membership gives you all of the time-consuming, day-to-day career tools that your careers program needs. All while saving 100+ hours of work each year in the process.
We provide news in two different formats – one where students and parents can subscribe for free to our exciting weekly news emails that we curate and send each Monday, plus we provide a researched Microsoft Word Newsletter that you can copy/edit/rebrand as your own to send via email or share on your school’s platforms.
Some schools encourage signups to save time, while others use our popular Word documents as a basis for their own newsletter to email out. You can even do both if you wish, it’s entirely up to you.
Yes, you certainly can.
Whilst it’s not designed to have your own private website domain or to have multiple extra pages added, it does allow you to customise much of the content and branding on the site. This means you have a fully functional careers website that you can leverage for communication at school.
Your membership will run for 12 months from the date of payment.
When you request a membership below, we’ll set you up with access and send you a PDF invoice via email with a secure Credit Card payment link (using Stripe). When your membership is due for renewal, we’ll automatically send you a new invoice for the next 12 months so you can continue to receive our service in the future. Nearly all of our schools (over 95%) renew each year and some schools have been with us for more than 10 years. And that’s because we overdeliver on value and support – which is why Career Counsellors love being long-term members.
Yes. In late 2023, our Lite Membership became available for any secondary school to apply for and access. It is currently provided in English, so if that’s you and your school setting, great – let’s get started.
No. You can share all the resources through your own school intranet and systems, so students don’t need to log in to our website to use the service.
There are a couple of features (like the Career Cluster Quiz) which take the minimum amount of information possible from students to be able to provide the service, but these are all optional and can be turned off.
