My career profile

The Adventures of You

The Adventures of You is a series of three, short animations that explore the mental skills required for career and life decision making.

The animations have support guides and worksheets that highlight the best ways to encourage executive function (decision making) development in young people aged 5-15 years and beyond.

The animations will help you to identify executive functions, relate them to your daily lives and take consistent, long-term action to improve your skills.

For parents and guardians

The Career development and management topic in Career insight contains articles that support you in helping your child make informed choices.
 
The topics within Career insight are all aligned to the Australian Work Studies Curriculum.

Occupation videos

Many of the occupation profiles have accompanying videos that provide insights into the occupations and their education and training requirements.

You can also find the occupation videos on the myfuture YouTube channel, with a playlist containing 60 videos which you can either scroll through or allow to run continuously.
