Parents and Students


Are you a parent, worried about your teenager’s future?
Does he/she seem to lack career ideas or be strangely unmotivated?
Do you want to minimise the risk of paying for tertiary education/ training that is not used, not completed or doesn’t seem quite right?

At Career Action we understand the difficulties students face in making career decisions. There are so many choices in study, training and employment it becomes difficult to know what to choose. Our focus is working with young people to develop sound career options and formulate Career Plans that not only please them, but allow them to realise their goals.

Our consultations will:
– Achieve a clear career direction for your teenager/young adult relevant to their academic level and individual personality
– Respect your role in career planning, while maintaining the confidentiality of the student consultation
– Equip your son/daughter with the knowledge, skills and techniques to find employment or gain entry to appropriate tertiary study or training courses.


Are you afraid of making the WRONG career choice?
Are you sick of the question, “What are you going to do when you leave school?”
Do you have no idea of what career is for you?

At Career Action we work with you to identify suitable career options that fit your interests, skills and dreams. We then develop a Plan of Action that outlines the steps required to achieve your chosen career options.

What’s in it for you?  We provide:

– A friendly, relaxed environment (with snacks if you’re hungry)
– The freedom to make your own choices
– One to one service that’s honest, confidential & non-judging
– Up to date study, training and work information you need
