Raising Career Awareness - Research

Dear Students, Parents and Teachers,

Thank you for considering involvement in this Sydney University research into Career Services in Western Suburbs Schools. The research is about 'Raising Career Awareness' in the western suburbs and is designed to increase awareness of Career related matters in this area.

The aim is to increase knowledge about this important concern whilst also helping to raise Career Awareness in students selected for this study.

Level of Commitment:

It will involve a  twenty-five question multiple choice questionnaire as well as an interview with students and teachers. The timing of these events will be organised so that there is minimal impact on the usual learning at the school. Students will be able to negotiate the time of their interview to minimize this impact.

Below you will find links to more information about this study for parents and students as well as Consent Forms, should you decide to support this study.

Professional Profile:

On the left you will find a photograph of myself being awarded a Professional Teachers Council Outstanding Professional Service Award in 2016 for my work for the Careers Advisers Association of NSW & ACT. Below you will find a link to my Profile as Communication Officer and Editor of the CAA professional publication 'Prospects'; my University of Sydney profile as well as my LinkedIn Profile. 

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further with me I invite you to send my an email gbai6875@uni.sydney.edu.au or call my personal mobile number: 0431642462
