In Unit 5
I am always fascinated with how students shape their aspirations and value different sources of information. Recently I was reflecting on my sons comment he made when I was asking about his friends aspirations for post HSC "We dont talk careers and uni like your school does - its just not something we talk about". This was concerning to me as he is in year 12 and I would have thought it was common for year 12 students to be having those types of conversations.

In Unit 4
Having completed university as a FIF and originating from a small town 7 hours from my campus, has led to a heightened awareness of the importance of my role in not only supporting and nurturing students aspirations, but in also helping them develop the resources necessary for continued educational success. This unit highlighted to me that there are particular students in every cohort that are navigating challenging circumstances that require more assistance in developing their resources than others, in order to make their journey smoother and increase their likelihood of achieving their aspirations.
