Promoting and Creating a K-12 Career Development Culture in Schools & Colleges

Power Point compiled by Dr Peter Carey

How Do We ‘Create’ the Culture?

WA Guidelines for Career Development Services and Transition Support Services

Career development in schools needs to:

  • be a “K-12 whole school approach”. It is the responsibility ofall teachers not just the Career Development Practitioner if it is to be sustainable. All students should be involvedandparents must be encouraged to be engaged and involved.
  • have the support of the school’s Leadership Team
  • be part of the school’s ongoing strategic planning and evaluation- seen as an important education goal of the school.
  • have adequate resources allocated to provide essential services and information products

KEY PRINCIPLES

  • The Australian Blueprint for Career Development(ABCD) is a significant tool for implementing a career development culture in the school setting.
  • Fundamental to creating a career development culture in schools is transition planning. Transition planning has three main elements:
  • Individual Pathway Plans (Career Plans)– a Transition Portfolio – an Exit Plan
slide3

WA Guidelines for Career Development Services and Transition Support Services

  • Eleven (11) Essential Career Development Services and programs in schools must include:
  • Transition Support: Individual Pathway Plans (IPPs), a Transition Portfolio and a Exit Plan
  • Follow-up Support
  • Career Development Support
  • Career Education
  • Enterprise Education
  • VET in Schools (VETiS), Workplace learning and Vocational Education
  • Career Information, Guidance and Counselling
  • Placement or Referral
  • Access and Equity- Individual Support Approaches
  • Monitoring and Tracking
  • Mentoring
slide4

5 Key Areas in the Implementation of the WA Guidelines

  • 1. Whole School Planning, Support & Coordination
  • School & Community Support: Acceptance of the Leadership Team - all teachers – for all students - parents involved
  • Career Development Coordination of program delivery and their evaluation by someone?
  • Staff Professional Development
  • Sustainability
  • 2. Embedding Career Competencies (ABCD)
  • We need to:
  • Conduct a needs assessment: staff needs for delivery … are the students needs met?
  • Conduct an audit: are all the competencies of the ABCD being met? In what learning areas?
  • Identify connection with other programs – Integrated curriculum
  • 3. Program Development / Redesign
  • Program Delivery: e.g. IPPs, Career Education, Transition Portfolio, exit plan
  • Service Provision: e.g. Career Information, guidance & counselling, transition support, monitoring and tracking
  • 4. Effective Implementation
  • Follow through on decisions made
  • Monitor, review & evaluate
  • 5. Continual Promotion
  • Promote the career development culture through staff, parent evenings etc.

Incorporating the ABCD and the WA Guidelines for Career Development and Transition Support Services

Operational Manual

The Operational Manual was developed to assist school implement the five (5) key areas of the WA Guidelines and determine ‘where a school is at’ in relation to:

  • Whole School Planning, Support & Coordination
  • Embedding Career Competencies (ABCD)
  • Program Development / Redesign
  • Effective Implementation of strategies
  • Continual Promotion

Using the Audit & Planning Tool: Where is your school at?

what is career development
What is Career Development?
  • Career Development is the “process of managing life, learning and work over the lifespan” (Wolf & Kolb, cited in McMahon, Patton & Tatham, 2003, p. 4).
  • It’s not just about “job searching, job matching or sending students out on work experience”… it’s about people taking responsibility for ones own life, learning and work and assisting them develop career managements skills essential for living in a rapidly changing and unpredictable world.

It’s the acceptance of the notion of life long learning

career development means many things
Career Development means many things!
  • In managing ones life students need:
  • to be literate and numerate
  • to feel good about oneself
  • to be a good corporate citizens
  • to be an active participant in the community
  • to be a lifelong learner having an opportunity for psychological success
  • to be resilient
  • Manage Learning
  • to develop learning to learn skills, metacognitive skills …
  • to develop critical thinking skills

slide12

  • 2: Interact positively and effectively with others
  • 3: Change and grow throughout life

split into four development phases across the lifespan
Split Into Four Development Phases Across The Lifespan
  • Phase I –students in K- Primary years
  • Phase II –students middle years (Years 8-10)
  • Phase III –students in senior years (Years 11-12)
  • Phase IV –adults
performance indicators
Performance Indicators

The competency at each phase has performance indicators which progress through a four stage learning taxonomy

Acquire

Apply

Personalise

Act

Performance indicators are specific knowledge, skills and attitudes that individuals need to develop to achieve a career competency

slide18

LOCAL STANDARDS

Local standards can than be developed from each performance indicator to suit local needs

Local Standards

Local standards are activities that describe what individuals will do to achieve a specific performance indicator, how well they need to do it, and the conditions under which they will perform the task

slide19

Example of Local Standard:

Local standard for performance indicator 2.1.3 for year 3 students

CAREER MANAGEMENT COMPETENCY 2.1:

Develop abilities for building positive relationships in life.

PERFORMANCE INDICATOR 2.1.3:

Identify positive social skills, such as empathy, cooperation, a willingness to help and show respect for others.

LOCAL STANDARD:

Year 3 students are presented with four school-based scenarios, two showing positive social skills, two showing poor social skills. Students are asked to identify which scenarios demonstrate positive social skills, and to name them. In the scenarios that illustrate poor social skills, students are asked to suggest positive behaviours that could have been used

(Acquire)

Performance Indicators for Competency 2 at Phase 1: Primary

slide20

Example of Local Standard:

CAREER COMPETENCY 4:

Participate in lifelong learning supportive of career goals

At PHASE I OF DEVELOPMENT (4.1) this reads as:

‘Discover lifelong learning and its contributions to life and work’.

Drill down to target PERFORMANCE INDICATOR: 4.1.7 to:

‘Evaluate your learning habits and study skills and identify those that help you best to learn.

Create a LOCAL STANDARD for your school population-

Given a celebrity of their choice (e.g., football player, pop star), Year 3 students will develop and deliver a brief verbal report explaining what might happen if the celebrity stopped putting effort into his or her work. The report must include references to at least two achievements that would be lost, and two abilities that might sustain the celebrity in his or her work.

(Personalise)

Performance Indicators for Competency 4 at Phase 1: Primary

slide21

Example of Local Standard:

Performance Indicators for Competency 6 at Phase 2: Lower secondary Year 9

CAREER COMPETENCY 6:

Understand the relationship between work, society and the economy

At PHASE II OF DEVELOPMENT (6.2) this reads as:

‘Understand how work contributes to the community’

Drill down to target PERFORMANCE INDICATOR 6.2.6:

‘Explore the impact of work on social, economic problems in the community’

Create a LOCAL STANDARD for your school population-

Following presentations from 7 local community service options, students will enrol in 1 option for 8 afternoons over one term. At the conclusion of the service learning project, students will write a detailed thank you letter to the organisation and an exposition for their portfolio detailing a) the role and impact of the work of that service organisation in their community and b) their personal experience of community service.

what to take away
What To Take Away?
  • Career development is now part of school K-12 strategic planning in WA
  • Activities from all learning areas can be mapped against Blueprint competencies
  • Career development for students becomes a whole school approach – all teachers, all students, all year levels.
