Delivering better careers information through a digital platform
The Institute is building a national careers-focused digital platform, to streamline and strengthen the way careers information is delivered in Australia. The digital platform will aim to deliver better careers information to people searching, delivering and providing advice about careers - at all ages, and stages, of life.
Co-designing the digital platform
The Institute is co-designing the digital platform by talking to people of all ages and all stages in their career journey; those who influence careers; employers who provide careers; and those who formally advise on careers. The Institute is using feedback provided in these consultations - held through focus groups, in-depth one-on-one interviews, and through a survey on this site - to develop and build the digital platform.
Some early findings from the survey on how people want to recieve careers information, and what people would like to see in the digital platform, is below.
