Tuesday 14th May: Here is some great news from a wonderful Equity Pathways friend, Brad Moggridge [featured person in Life on the Job] ... in an email

"Yaama all

Exciting news in that Indigenous knowledge can now be part of the Australian Curricular and not an elective. Uni of Melbourne and PM&C have produced a series of resources for Water, Fire and Astronomy for teachers to consider for all subjects to prepare lesson content for students.

I have been involved in facilitating the water content (years 5 and 10) along with some other deadly water experts writing the content, which has been awesome.

Uploaded all of the resources (42 in total across the 3 topics) to the University website at:
https://indigenousknowledge.research.unimelb.edu.au/
[Note from Frances Moore - all of these resources are under Creative Commons!]

Water; Fire, Astronomy

No excuse now and just think of the benefits for all students and also the pride of Indigenous students taking the lead on these topics and learning progressing their own culture at school.

Good luck

Did You Know?

Future Ready“The Australian Government released its National Career Education Strategy – “Future Ready”. This strategy focuses on school students and is the result of collaboration with states and territories and endorsed by the COAG Education Council. This document is aspirational and the real test will be how it is practically implemented. “

(Source: Gabrielle O’Brien, President, Equity Practitioners in Higher Education Australasia)

The strategy can be downloaded from: 
https://www.education.gov.au/national-career-education-strategy
 

As one of the few university websites looking at careers, we hope that On the Job will help provide information, stimulating and thought provoking activities to encourage lateral, critical and creative thinking in your students from Years 5 – 6 through to Year 12.  


Future Ready promotes the ideas of lateral thinking and transferable skills. We hope On the Job will help you with these endeavours. 


Lateral Thinking Transferable Skills

 

February

At On the Job, we are gradually adding Future Growth icon to each job - either Decline, Static, Moderate, Strong and Very Strong. This information comes from the Australian Government website - Job Outlook.
