About our program

It’s never too early to start thinking about the world of work! Young people need opportunities to learn from employers about careers and the skills they might need. The Year 9 Career Taster Program (CTP) provides an exciting opportunity to challenge students' thinking, spark their ‘career curiosity’ and make connections between education and post-school opportunities.

The CTP enables Western Australia’s Year 9 students to explore the stages of early career discovery and study pathways, helping them to make informed decisions about their subject selections in Years 10, 11 and 12. The program supports students to become ‘career curious’ and extend their thinking through practical activities and meaningful experiences with the world of work.
