Introducing the Careers Strategy - Nina Ive & Ian Lee, Tertiary Education Commission

In October 2019 TEC encourage schools to participate in Drawing the Future. This initiative asks students to draw what they want to be when they grow up on a Drawing the Future template and answer a few simple questions. It's an easy 30-minute exercise that Teachers can run in their classroom and a fun way to get children thinking about their futures.

All the printed materials required will be provided by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). In October schools will be able to order a Drawing the Future pack from 

They'll need to send the drawings back to the TEC in the self-addressed, pre-paid envelope provided.

The information received will help the TEC understand children's career aspirations and what factors influence these. The findings will be used to develop a programme called Inspiring the Future that shows tamariki all the career pathways that exist, helping to broaden aspirations for all our young people.

Schools that take part will be amongst the first to receive a Drawing the Future research paper. They'll also go into a prize draw where they could win one of 10 art supply packs, each worth $100.
