Welcome to the Student Pathways Team Moodle

The Student Pathways Team, a portfolio within DECD Learning Improvement Division is involved with a range of topics relevant to schools and senior secondary students in particular.

The Industry Pathways Program (IPP) is a component of the Industry Skills Program. Senior Leaders, based in different sites around the State, support schools to establish VET in specific industries, as purchased training from a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) or delivered locally or regionally under an auspiced arrangement with an RTO.

The science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) strategy is a priority for DECD and is aligned to South Australia’s Strategic Plan (SASP) Target 88, which aims to increase by 15% the number of students receiving an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank or equivalent in mathematics, physics or chemistry by 2020. DECD, through the Student Pathways Team, has the lead responsibility for five of the key actions in this area and contributes to a number of others.

The SACE Improvement program works with selected schools to develop and share resources and tools based on successful practices.

The Career Strategy is also an initiative of the Student Pathways team. Follow the menu above for resources which support the implementation and maintenance of a school-wide Career Strategy.

Workplace Learning has a collection of resources for educators, and offers the opportunity to add to these if you have found something useful in your own professional dealings in this area.

The Induction Resources link above is for Student Pathways officers new to the team.

There are other resources you might find useful on the Trade Schools for the Future site. Specific resources are also available on the Advanced Technology Project site.
