Deciding what to study?

“I am studying at TAFE WSI because I want to achieve job stability and job security”

It is important that you consider your career goals carefully and understand that your career development will likely be a series of decisions throughout your life.

We know from talking with prospective and current students, when you are choosing what to study, one of the questions you ask yourself is ‘Will I get a job and will I get job security from this course?’

After you have considered your interests and what you are good at, and have thought about how to boost your own prospects through study for example, you may want to look in more detail at factors which might help with your decisions about which particular occupation or career to pursue and what studies to undertake to help you achieve that goal.

These considerations can include the availability of work in your local area, pay and conditions, relevant training, future jobs growth and skill level. 

To help make this important decision, we have provided you with some resources, including the Australian Jobs 2014 - Publication, prepared by the Australian Government (Department Employment).

This publication presents summary information for people exploring careers and education and training options, as well as those currently looking for work or wanting assistance to enter or re-enter the labour market. The publication includes past and projected employment trends, by industry and occupation, as well as information about skills, the publication provides a snapshot of the Australian labour market and introduces readers to a range of information about the workforce, employment and training.

It is important that you consider your career goals carefully and understand that your career development will likely be a series of decisions throughout your life.

To help you make this decision now, we encourage you to talk it through with someone you can trust or visit Planning your Career page  or contact one of our Career Counsellors if you’re unsure.
