Feeling confident in your ability to make
good decisions about work, study and career options when you leave school is very important. That’s why the NSW Department of Education
has developed the Student Pathways Survey and Plan to assist you to develop the skills
to make good decisions when you leave school and into the future. To get started, simply login through the student
portal, click onto the Student Pathways Survey and Plan and follow the instructions. Remember, the questions are about you, so
it is important that you take time to read the questions and to think carefully about
your responses. There is no right or wrong answer, and your
teacher is there to assist if you need help. Expect the survey to take around 30 minutes
to complete – it is important that you do not rush your answers. Some questions will ask you to think about
how confident, how important or how likely it is that you think something will happen. Look at the survey scale for your options
before you answer. Other questions will ask you for a free text
response to a particular question. Please limit your answers here to less than
40 words. When you are finished, click on ‘submit’. This will create a Student Feedback Report
that is all about you. Please take time to read the report carefully,
as it includes a summary of your survey responses, as well as tips and suggestions for improving
your career planning skills and confidence. You can come back to this report at any time
in the student portal. Your next step is to open your Student Pathways
Plan, which you can also access at any time through the student portal. The Student Pathways Plan allows you to record
your ideas of how you are going to action your future work, study and career plans,
and to track and review your progress. It includes things like what steps or actions
need to be taken, who can help you, what do you want to achieve, when is action needed,
what have I learnt and what do I need to do next The Plan includes some suggested actions from
your survey, but it also allows you to think and put in your own ideas and suggestions
– especially after you have discussed your Feedback Report with your Careers Adviser,
done other research, completed student activities and worksheets, participated in work experience,
attended Careers Expos or other suggested actions You can always do the survey again if you
feel that your ideas have changed. By completing the survey, your voice and the
voices of your classmates as a group also provides your careers adviser and school with
important information so they can better support all of you to prepare for life beyond school. Remember, your careers adviser and other teachers
are there to assist you to achieve your career goals. Simply go to your student portal to get started.
