WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
It’s pretty clear that the globe is entering a time of great economic, social, and environmental change. Research tells us that with this shift into the fourth industrial revolution, young people will need to develop new mindsets, skills, and capabilities to thrive in a rapidly changing world of work.
Many young people feel underprepared to transition from school and to make informed career decisions. Educators have a desire to innovate but often feel hamstrung by systemic pressures and workload. Parents are concerned their children won’t be able to successfully transition from education to employment.
CLEARLY, THERE IS A STRONG CASE FOR CHANGE, BUT WHERE DO WE BEGIN?
In collaboration with workplace learning specialists and in co-design with teachers, students and thought leaders, Prince’s Trust Australia has created Achieve, an inquiry-based framework that engages young people in learning through careers education and enterprise skills development.
Achieve Fest was launched to showcase the Achieve framework as an online immersion. All of the resources and materials are available at no cost via our online resource hub, Achieve Online.
