This 2008 report was produced by the Australian Council for Educational Research for the Department for Education, Science and Training. It examined the participation of pupils in career guidance activities in upper secondary school and of the perceived usefulness of such activities to pupils. In overall terms, the individual career guidance interview was perceived as the most useful activity participated in. Lower-achieving pupils and pupils unsure whether they would complete the final secondary school year year placed more value on careers interventions. As young people participated in more career activities, they found career advice to be more useful.
