About the career education self-assessment tool for schools

Content and supporting resources for the Career education self-assessment tool were developed by the Career Industry Council of Australia (CICA). The tool has been developed around the Key elements for enhanced career education for students  identified in the Preparing Secondary Students for Work framework. The tool assists schools to reflect on their career education programs and identify areas of good practice and areas where there is room for improvement.


The tool can be used by a range of users including the school leadership team, Principals, teachers, career advisers and career education teachers. Schools who are able to demonstrate a high level of achievement in each of the six key elements will be providing a career education program that meets international best practise and is of high quality.
