Parents and teachers
We are committed to supporting teachers, careers advisers and parents to assist high school students through an exciting, stressful and emotional time. So, to help we’ve put together some resources in one place so you can provide guidance and support to the students in your life.
These tools are designed to make the journey from high school and the HSC through to studying at university just that little bit easier.Teachers and career advisers
