School-based career guidance
Career FocusNZ provides a tailored career development programme for schools, careers advisors and key staff using available resources to create a workable model within your environment.
Career resources, pathways to employment, practical solutions!
The most important aspect of career guidance is for young people to understand themselves, their options and what opportunities are available to them to choose the pathway that best suits their skills and ambitions.
Career FocusNZ helps schools design clear pathways into tertiary, trades apprenticeships, pre-employment courses or employment.
Every student deserves access to a careers counselor
Whether working with at risk students or high achievers, career counselling is crucial in helping young people picture what their future could look like. Muriel at CareerFocusNZ has supported many young people with their study or employment pathways which in many cases led to increased engagement and better results in school.
High achieving students don’t necessarily know how to navigate their tertiary pathway. Subject selection, university applications, student loans, scholarships, university visits etc can all be overwhelming for both students and whanau. CareerFocusNZ has alleviated the pressure by supporting both students and whanau in this process.
