Discover the Career Clusters

These clusters link common sets of skills, tasks, outcomes, and work environments across a range of industries.

Six Career Clusters

Try thinking differently about how people work

There’s more to work than industries. That’s why it doesn’t make sense to only group jobs by the industries they’re found in.

We’ve built on research from the Foundation for Young Australians to define six Career Clusters that group people based on their key tasks, core technical and transferrable skills, and common outcomes. You’ll find people from each cluster within each industry.

It’s a different way of thinking about jobs, and with the Career Clusters it’s easier to look beyond the most popular jobs in each industry, and understand the diversity of jobs on offer.

 

Linker

Linkers help us find, choose, secure, and use things. They can help us with products and physical items, or with the services and support we need.

Guardian

Guardians protect our mental and physical wellbeing. They help us care for our health, and guard against illness and injury. They also seek solutions to health issues.

Informer

Informers advise, teach, and guide us so we can learn the things we need to know. With their help, we can manage our legal, social, and financial responsibilities, and participate in society.

Innovator

Innovators design, engineer, and manufacturer things we use in all areas of our lives, from the clothes we wear, to the food we eat, the homes we live in and the roads we drive on.

Maker

Makers create and maintain the places where we live and work. They grow crops, build homes, repair vehicles, and keep the power on.

Coordinator

Coordinators are the people who plan, prepare, and administer our events, systems and economy. They play a vital role in making sure everything runs smoothly.

You'll find the Career Clusters in the Ponder Program

We needed a new way to think about work, one which enables young people to align themselves with task roles and skills that suit their strengths. The Ponder Program uses the Career Clusters to provide clarity and connection for students.
