Career Development in Schools: Do Teachers Have the Skills?
Schloss, Janelle
Australian Journal of Career Development, v20 n3 p4-9 Spr 2011
In 2010, Independent Schools Queensland funded 40 places in the Certificate IV in Career Development conducted by the Australian Trade Training College Ltd. Places were quickly filled by VET and senior schooling staff, 34 of whom completed the qualification. There is evidence that even very experienced teachers were prepared to undertake this qualification, even though it meant giving up eight days of their school holidays. This enthusiasm for gaining the qualification may be an indication that these teachers felt that they did not already have the skills for their career development roles with students in their schools.
