The Career Clusters is an extension of the CDAA Commended Ponder Program that launched in schools across Australia in 2022. 

Comprising a 40-week Career Education Framework (CDF) for Years 7-12, and aligned with the Australian Blueprint for Career Development (the ‘Blueprint’) and ACARA General Capabilities, it’s a best-practice program that’s affordable, flexible, and loved by educators in every state & territory.
