National Careers Institute

The National Careers Institute (NCI) supports Australians with reliable and accurate careers information and resources.

We aim to be Australia’s recognised source of independent careers information, collaborating with industry leaders and promoting best practices in careers education nationally.

The foundation of the NCI’s work is the world-leading labour market intelligence provided by Jobs and Skills Australia (JSA).

Support for School Leavers

Life after school can be full of exciting opportunities. As you make your next move, the School Leavers Information Kit (SLIK) can help you uncover education, training, and employment options.

Information on support for young people with disability, young people in regional, rural and remote areas and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people is also available on Your Career.

Are you a parent or guardian of a school leaver? We’ve developed a dedicated Parents and guardians guide, just for you. The guide, available at Your Career website, has been developed to help you support your young person in making informed career decisions. When it’s time to think about life after school, you can help your young person make their next move.

VET in Action

The Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector offers opportunities for all Australians to contribute to a modern, thriving economy and an agile workforce. The NCI partners with businesses and individuals to highlight the benefits that VET pathways offer, including those supported by Fee Free TAFE.
