Careers Counsellors provide individuals and groups with information about career choices and assist individuals with self-development.
You usually need a formal qualification in career development to work as a Careers Counsellor. University and Vocational Education and Training (VET) are both common study pathways. A University qualification provides industry recognition at the professional level and a VET qualification provides industry recognition at the para-professional level.
Registration with the state or territory teaching board is required to teach in schools.
