Learning pathways

What is a learning pathway?

Your learning pathway is the way you navigate your learning, skill development and life experiences through education and training, as well as your community and personal life.

There are many learning pathways you can take on your way to any employment destination and yours will be unique. Your learning pathway may consist of employment-based training, such as an Australian Apprenticeship (referred to as an apprenticeship or traineeship, depending on your state or territory), volunteering, entry-level work, further study and/or job advancement.

Throughout your career, the choices you make between different jobs, courses and roles in your community will guide you on your learning pathway. To understand where your choices can take you, it is a good idea to learn about:

  • the different types of learning experiences available and if/how they are related
  • where learning takes place.
