Illumine for Parents: Navigating the next stage: subject selection, degree choices and ATAR anxiety

‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’

Navigating career choices with your daughter can be an exciting and nerve-wracking experience—for both parents and children. Students today are more aware than ever that the subject selections they make in high school can impact the degrees and courses that they want to study at a tertiary level in their post-schooling lives. Adding to this complexity, the current generation of adolescents do not see themselves as having just one career—recent data has revealed that Gen Z will have multiple careers—some of which do not even exist today.

In this episode of Illumine for Parents, Ms Jacinda Euler Welsh, is joined by Director of Tertiary Pathways, Ms Louise Walls, and Careers Counsellor, Ms Karla Shaw to discuss how parents can help their daughters navigate through subject selections, career choices, and exam anxiety.
