Mapped against the CDI Framework

The Career Development Institute's (CDI) framework identifies the six areas of learning that facilitate positive careers and lifelong career development. As you build your curriculum framework you'll be able to see which learning areas you are covering and the learning outcomes they support.

Grow throughout life by learning and reflecting on yourself, your background and your strengths.

Explore possibilities

Explore the full range of possibilities open to you and learn about recruitment processes and the culture of different workplaces.

Manage career

Manage your career actively, make the most of opportunities and learn from setbacks.

Create opportunities

Create opportunities by being proactive and building relationships with others.

Balance life and work

Balance your life as a worker and/or entrepreneur with your wellbeing, other interests and your involvement with your family and community.

See the big picture

See the big picture by paying attention to how the economy, politics and society connect with your own life and career.

  • What schools say

    “The careers curriculum has been invaluable to our school. It has been the complete package with delivery PPTs, workbooks and visual roadmaps. The progression framework and overviews have also been useful when creating the careers curriculum roadmap and a careers handbook for stakeholders. We are about a third of the way through and the response from staff teaching it has been really positive, saying it is easy to use.”
