Future You takes the guesswork out of career decisions
Wintec has launched a new online careers tool to help with the biggest issue prospective students face - deciding what to study.
The new tool, Future You, is designed to aid students in understanding what careers they may be suited to, and matches their profile to the relevant programmes they need to study.
Wintec Executive Director Products and Planning, Warwick Pitts says Wintec students represent a wide range of ethnicity, age ranges and experiences and making the right enrolment choice is critical to their success.
“Our challenge as vocational educators is to support and guide students through their learning experience, no matter what their pathway is. So, making the right decision early is critical for students as it saves time, money and can create better opportunities for them to be successful.
We developed the Future You as a fun, but seriously engaging tool to help set our students on their future career pathway. We hope potential students receive significant benefits from using this new resource.”
Future You is now live on Wintec’s website and the careers tool will be officially launched and put to use at The Careers Expo at Claudelands in Hamilton from 9-10 June. The expo attracts hundreds of secondary school students from around the region and Wintec will be there to assist them in matching study choices to their career goals.
Warwick says the new tool is part of a major project to enable better study success for students.
“Our next step is to develop a pathways tool which informs the user what programmes they are eligible for and what the gaps are, based on their existing qualifications.”
