About the program

The Educational Pathways Program is an innovative program designed to improve education and career outcomes for young people by introducing NSW public high schools students to a range of vocational training and employment pathways.

About the Educational Pathways Program

The Educational Pathways Program was launched as a pilot in 24 schools in 2020. As a result of the successful pilot phase, the program is now being delivered in 148 government high schools across 9 regions of NSW.

The Educational Pathways Program complements existing careers education activities through the provision of additional resources, including two key roles; Head Teachers Careers and SBAT Engagement Officers, who work closely with schools to:

  • Ensure students have access to sound advice, great training pathways and rewarding work opportunities.
  • Promote SBAT opportunities, a proven pathway for students to successfully transition to work and/or further education.
  • Connect students with employers and provide tailored support throughout the SBAT journey.
  • Streamline delivery of the program across groups of schools.
  • Support students with barriers to education.
