ACE Overview

Adolescent Career Education (ACE) offers evidence based career education e-resources for Senior School Students.  The ACE online career education resources provide schools with flexible, low cost, high quality, classroom based career education solutions that effortlessly track student career related data throughout all their Senior School years. Two main ACE resources are available: the ACE e-course (previously published as the print version Career Choice Cycle Course) and ACE e-Senior Education and Training (SET) Plans.  The Adolescent Career Education e-resources are designed to assist students with their important career-related decisions by helping prepare them for the subject selection process, enhancing self-awareness and career decision-making ability, and reducing career indecision.  These web-based resources have been developed by author, educator, psychologist and experienced career development practitioner Lee-Ann Prideaux PhD.
