Myfuture Webinars for parents/carers, teachers and career practitioners

Opportunity awareness and career development: teachers and career practitioners webinar

Tuesday, 15 June 2021, 2pm AWST

Finding out about different occupations and investigating which ones might suit you is an important step in the career development process. Young people need assistance to experience and gain an understanding of the world of work, their potential range of opportunities, what requirements and responsibilities they will need to meet, and what satisfaction and rewards they are likely to achieve.

In this webinar, Michelle Maes will explain how effective research can introduce students to occupations they didn’t even know existed and provide reliable insights to help make informed choices. Register now


Student wellbeing and career resilience in a rapidly changing world: teachers and career practitioners webinar

Tuesday, 22 June 2021, 2pm AWST

Young people face a future working life which will be marked by constant change. The economic impacts of COVID-19 have caused labour market disruption and job losses for many young people who are over-represented in hard-hit industries such as tourism, hospitality, and arts and culture. Many students have missed important milestones and struggled with the isolation imposed by lockdowns.

In this webinar, Dr Lyn O'Grady, a psychologist who specialises in the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people, will explore the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on student emotional and psychological wellbeing which may create obstacles for students facing complex career decisions and transitions. Lyn will offer practical advice, strategies and resources for teachers and career practitioners supporting students in extraordinary times of change.Register now
