Personal Learning Plans
The PLP helps you plan your SACE study pathway by focusing your attention on your interests, strengths and capabilities and the possible career options these might lead to. It helps you to make informed decisions about the subjects you will study in Years 11 and 12 and the Vocational Education and Training (VET) course options that may be included as part or all of your SACE. In your PLP you will need to think about such things as:
what your preferred learning style might be;
your academic and personal capabilities;
what you are good at;
what you need to work on and improve and your future goals.
This will assist you to develop a study plan, which will lead you toward the sorts of careers that YOU are interested in.
You may be very unsure, at this stage, exactly what you want to do or there may be several possible career options that you have an interest in. The information provided here is to assist you when you are looking at answering some of those questions, for example:
What are my personal needs and interests?
What are my strengths?
What subjects at school am I good at and interested in?
What subjects at school do I need to work on?
What are my future aspirations?
How will I learn/study to meet these?
How can I prepare for my career while I am still at school?
What are employability skills and how can I acquire them?
How do I prepare for my pathway from school?
Some questions to ask yourself are:
Do you have some of these strengths and interests?
Do you think business skills might be a useful addition to your education?
