Worksheet 1

Step One — Career or employment goals

Think about the areas of work and the environment that you would like to work in and list these career/employment goals below. For example: working with computers in an office; exhibiting artwork in a major exhibition; writing articles for a magazine or newspaper; or working with plants in a laboratory.

Step Two — Study fields

Brainstorm the fields of study that would help you to achieve these goals and list them below. For example, IT studies, business administration, database design, visual arts, sculpture, painting or drawing, design, creative writing, journalism or horticulture.

Step Three — Matching courses to your goals

Look at the course website or course books published education by providers. Decide which courses in the study fields match your goals and then list them below.

Step Four — Possible employment avenues

Look at the courses you have listed above. Identify possible employment pathways that these courses may create and list them below.

Step Five — Matching career/employment goals to possible employment avenues


Step Six — Identifying prior knowledge

Some TAFE courses recognise prior learning through what is called RPL. It can mean that you may not need to do so many subjects in order to complete your course.
Identify and list any areas where you have prior knowledge and/or skills that you could obtain credit for from the education institution running the course.
For example: VET subjects, previous vocational or work experience, experience in the community though volunteer work, bridging courses or workshops.
