National Career Institute Partnership Grant Funding

National Careers Institute Partnership Grants Program

the brief:

In partnership with Breakaway Aboriginal Corporation, Keipa Boodja Aboriginal Corporation and Jenny Gleeson Coaching & Consulting, we have obtained funding to run a 12-month project “Career Dimensions through self-exploration and collaboration” for their high-level youth at risk.

 

This program involves training for both Aboriginal Corporation’s staff members in career development and personality profiling, and then the roll out of a series of workshops to their young people in self-exploration and career identification.

KEY OBJECTIVES: 

  • To train staff in personality profiling and career development as it relates to their cohort of young people.
     

  • Promote program to families, employers, schools.
     

  • Deliver career programs over two semesters.
     

  • Run career events for youth, families, employer and schools.
     

  • Young people will understand career dimensions of personality, styles, strengths, characteristics related to careers.
     

  • Gain a greater awareness of skills sought by employers.
     

  • Create individualised career pathway planning.
     

  • Family/Employers are invited to events to engage with youth through a shared understanding.

STRATEGY:

  • Career/Personality Dimensions is a program aimed at assisting young people in education, employment, or training to discover careers of interest in a supported,
    structured, and explorative environment.
     

  • The program is designed to build the capacity of the young people to reach their full potential by increasing their understanding of skills sought by employers, learn how to research careers of interest for themselves, and how to network with ease.
     

  • Not only does this program build career confidence for the young people but also builds capacity of the staff (Breakaway and Keipa Boodja Aboriginal Corporations), who will obtain a Level I Certification of the program in advance and support the young people over the course of the program and beyond, as required.

RESULT:

Nine staff from Breakaway and four members of Keipa Boodja have been selected to undergo training and delivery.

 

The program has only recently commenced.
