Answering the tough questions…

Sometimes asking questions about what you’re going to do when you leave school and the pathway to your next step is tough – sometimes you just don’t know what to ask. 

We spoke to students from Northern Bay College and asked them to share important questions about the first steps into their future. 

The multicultural group was able to help with both questions and answers in Arabic, Dari, Karen, Nuer, and Swahili. 


It can be difficult to know what is okay to ask at work

We know that mentally healthy workplaces keep you engaged, working safely and feeling happy at work.

The Ready to Launch Pathways Project makes use of Trello Boards, a collaborative tool that allows contributors to compile information, information resources and other assets specifically designed to help you transition between school and the workforce. 

The Trello Boards are best viewed on a mobile phone or through the Trello App, which can be downloaded via the Apple App Store or through Google Play.

To view the boards most effectively, we recommend you do the following: 

  1. Click the link to one of the Trello Boards. 
  2. Sign up to a free Trello account. 
  3. Click the ‘star’ to save the Trello Board as one of your favourites. 
  4. Click the ‘card’ within the Trello board that you wish to know more about.

If you need any additional help about the Trello Boards or information relating to the presentations, you can always ask the the BATForce team.
