Post-school plans: aspirations, expectations and implementation

Schools Australia

This study by ACER for the Smith Family found that family wealth has a weak affect on students' post-school plans. Gender, ability and vocational orientation are the most important factors influencing post-school plans. The report describes the post-school plans of a group of young Australians in the late 1990s; the factors associated with the development of these plans; and associations between the types of post-school plans and a student's predisposition towards lifelong learning.
