Community Services Gateway Schools Launch’s
A key success factor to the project is building partnerships with local communities and the Community Services Gateway launches are a great way to do this. The launch consists of industry | employers, stakeholders, registered training organisation, universities, and key school personnel.
Held at the school, usually in the morning for approximately 1 to 1.5hrs with networking and morning tea, with speakers from the school and community promoting the project etc. It is great to have local Mayors, MP and Senior Education personnel to attend and endorse the project plus engage with local employers.

Community Services Gateway to Industry School Program offers your students the opportunity to complete a Work Preference Questionnaire to support their career decisions. We support you (our Gateway teachers) in professional development sessions to learn how interpret and engage with your students when reviewing their results. The questionnaire covers:
Your Greatest Strengths Report: This report builds understanding and self-esteem. The positive narrative of their report provides students with an insight into their hidden potential and provides meaningful material to help them develop a unique resume.
Career Development Report: This report is designed as a coaching tool to prepare students for the work place and identifies potential areas students may not be aware of.
Career Options Report: Whilst considering careers with a 75% or high result, it’s up to the student to select the careers they wish to consider. Based on the Enjoyment Performance Theory, it has been proved that individuals who enjoy 75% or more of their career are 3 times more likely to succeed than those who enjoy less than 75% of their career.
To order the questionnaire for your students, please email us with students names and email address using the link below.
Professional Development session are available, please view the Professional Development tab for more information.
Traits and Definitions Game
To support you career discovery experience we have created a Game that clarifies the definition of 32 of the traits used in the Questionnaire. So often we think we have a general idea of the meaning of a word, however often we could benefit from a clear definition.
The term “Assertive” is often misunderstood to mean aggressive or pushy. When in fact it just means “to say what you want or need”.
The clearer our understanding of the terms used in the questionnaire, the greater chance we have of responding with confidence.
We hope you enjoy the Trait & Definition Game
