Get Set for the NEW FUTURE

For parents of older students, the Department of Education's New Future website has now been launced.

The site contains content designed to get young people thinking about how they can apply their skills and explore their interests in a rapidly changing world.  The site will continue to have content added throughout the coming months. 

The launch coincides with career development events being held around the State for teachers and also events for parents and the community.  We encourage parents of older students to start simple conversations with their children about future skills and pathways.
