GLC has been producing career education resources for NZ & Australian schools for more than a decade, utilising the writer's experience as a practising school careers advisor.

These affordable resources are designed to meet the real needs of those working in the careers and transition area, including Gateway. All packages include a Teachers' Guide and can be used at various levels within a secondary school or Youth Guarantee programme. Assessment Schedules are included for packages offering NZQA credits. All packages are reviewed and/or updated annually.

One of the best things we can do for students right now is help develop their career (i.e. lifelong planning) development skills to assist them to deal with the new normality that awaits them.

2020 and 2021 threw up new and unforeseen challenges to us all. While we hope for a more settled 2022, we know there are no guarantees. If you are looking for suitable resources for your secondary school students to work with at this time we could have what you need. Many schools have commented that their students enjoyed having workbooks as opposed to doing yet another zoom lesson (although both the junior and senior career planning workbooks are also available as Google docs).

Career Workbooks available – their future career deserves it! These workbooks are the standard for NZ schools.

  • My Career Plan for Juniors

    Give your students the very best career workbook available. Your students deserve it. This is a critical stage in their career development, and this workbook is up to the challenge. This highly interactive workbook is the most widely used career resource of its kind in New Zealand schools. Its aim is to familiarise students with the career planning process rather than selecting a specific career to aim for.

  • Career Decision Making

    The Career Decision Making workbook is designed for Year 11-13 students, particularly those who need support in this area. Because it is not unit standard based, the teacher can utilise the whole workbook or focus on specific activities, depending on the needs of the student(s). You are also able to set the depth of responses, depending on the ability level of the student(s). It is suitable for full class or individual student use and could be delivered by other teachers (for example during a house group period/form time) as part of a school-wide careers programme. Topics covered in the workbook include:

    • Decision making
    • Personal qualities, interests and work values
