“Grandshake's virtual work experience platform has been very beneficial for our students; they enable industry education and workplace experiences across a very wide range career pathways. It is essential for students to broaden their experiences but also to help inform their subject choices as they look at what they will narrow their pathways down and subject choices in year 10, 11 and 12.”

Enable life-long learners

Career education is not just a good-to-have!

"Schools and industry must engage more systematically with employers to help senior secondary students gain an understanding of the world of work, undertake effective career planning, and access opportunities for employment and training."


"Programs that support school– industry partnerships at scale, such as hubs and brokerage arrangements, should be put in place to increase the quality and longevity of school–industry partnerships"


"Industry connections can facilitate development, training and employment opportunities, promote a sense of responsible citizenship and encourage lifelong learning."
