Helping young people explore their career pathways
The School Leavers Information Kit (SLIK) is a useful and informative guide to help young people explore their career pathways. This resource was developed by the National Careers Institute (NCI), a division of the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE).
We worked with NCI to create a suite of resources to complement the SLIK branding. We tested the messaging and look of these materials with young people and their influencers – teachers, parents, and career advisors – and incorporated their feedback into the final products. Adopting this approach ensured we met the engagement needs of the target audience and developed resources that clearly conveys information young people need.
NCI valued our expertise and approach. Feedback about our involvement with the product included comments like:
• high quality work throughout the project
• strong attention to detail
• the care Information Access Group put into the work shone through.
We are thrilled to have been involved in a project that will support thousands of young people around Australia on their career journey.
You can read the SLIK on the Your Career website.
We have high standards when it comes to delivering accessible documents. We’re experts in providing accessible information through the publication of Microsoft Word documents and PDF files. We can also produce ePub formats and accessible HTML.
We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA for the production of accessible documents. We also adhere to the publishing standards of individual organisations, and follow the advice of the Australian Government Digital Transformation Agency.
Importantly, we urge organisations not to rely on PDF alone. This is largely because:
- Not all versions of all screen readers read out PDFs consistently.
- PDF does not currently have accessibility support on mobile devices.
