In Unit 6
This unit made me realise just how important we, as teachers are, in helping guide our students to achieving their future aspirations. It is important to provide time for discussions with students, starting in the primary years, about their goals and how they can reach them.

In Unit 4
This was an interesting unit to complete. As a primary teacher, I was actually not aware of the enabling and access programs such as Open Foundation, that are available for students to enter, in order to move onto University in the future. It is wonderful to know that these exist in order to help people achieve their goals.

In Unit 3
I enjoyed looking at each of the career areas e.g. Teaching, STEM and examining the factors that influenced student choices. It was interesting to note that there still seems to be more males entering into career paths such as the Military, with females predominantly entering into occupations within Nursing, The Arts etc.

In Unit 2
There was a great deal of valuable information in Unit 2 with regards to aspirations and expectations. It was interesting to think about the number of factors that affect our students in decision making about the future and the important role we as teachers play in guiding them.
